Windows 7: Pinned programs, subsequent documents are not stacked on pinned icon

Pinned programs, subsequent documents are not stacked on pinned icon

All pinned programs incl WinExp

Initial use of pinned-icon is OK but subsequent instances of (eg) Win-Exp are scattered through the TaskBar.
- it appears taskbar windows are in opening order, programs are not adjacent to each other
- a real pest when I have a lot of windows open
- dragging to group same prog windows together can create even more disjointed results

Current setting is "Combine Windows when taskbar is full"

When the taskbar is full, only then do same program windows "combine"

Would appreciate any help
