Windows 7: Show Only Certain Windows Stacked, not all windows

Show Only Certain Windows Stacked, not all windows

Forgive my ignorance if this is the wrong place. I am new here. I saw a thread by Brink on how to "Show Windows Stacked or Side by Side" which grabs ALL open programs and shows tehm stacked, and I only want to show certain programs stacked. I use a batch file to launch a bunch of kd debugger windows to other systems, and after launching them, I want to stack them, but only them.

How would I do that?

I don't understand your reply. I am trying to launch some programs (all of the same kind, KD debug) and then stack just those windows and not all the programs that are open at that time. I only want the kd sessions stacked.

You can manually stack windows by shift-right clicking on a group on the task bar and choosing "Show Windows Stacked". I want to do that programatically in a batch file.
