Rearranging taskbar buttons inside a group ?

Hi,

I have a quick question regarding something that I have searched for for a long time and could not find an answer for at all.

Is it possible to rearrange the taskbar buttons that are inside a group ?

By default, they are arranged in the order in which they were opened and I cannot find a way to rearrange them. If I try to click and drag, the whole group is moved. How can I rearrange the individual buttons from a group ?

Thank you.

Taskbar buttons can be made to be displayed in groups. So that if you have 3 folders opened, their buttons are displayed in the taskbar one after another, connected. If you have 3 notepad files opened, again, their buttons are displayed connected, in a group. If you open another folder, the button is added to the folders group, not displayed last, after the notepad group. And so on. If this is not happening for you, you might have this option turned off.

And my problem was with ordering the buttons when they are displayed in a group.

if this is what you mean then no you cant rearrange the order of the view in the peek, however you could open the items in the order you want them to show.
not sure why though.
