    Hello Hengehog, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Not by default, but your can left click and hold on them, then drag the icon to another location on the taskbar to manually group them.

    Hope this helps,

    I was wondering if there was a way to group unopened applications on the task bar?
    to turn this:
    You can unpin all your programs and create a toolbar for launching. This would be similar to how it worked in Windows XP/Vista.

    Hello. I have looked through the previous replies, and I can't find a solution to my problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    My problem is that everytime I open up a new World of Warcraft client, I get 2 icons on my taskbar, while there should only be one. I have it pinned to the taskbar, and every other program combines the windows, just not World of Warcraft... The problem started yesterday, I don't know exactly what triggered it (as I have not messed with any settings), and I have tried the "Right click on taskbar -> Properties -> Always combine, hide lables" method (it has always been on this setting)...

    As you can see in the picture, I have 3 Firefox windows, and few MSN ones, they all combine... It's just WoW that doesn't.

    Hello Teex, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    See if unpining your current pinned WOW taskbar icon, then run WOW and right click on the taskbar icon and pin it to see if it works properly afterwards. Since it's a game, you may need to press the Windows Key to see the taskbar after running WOW.

    Hope this helps,

    Hello Brink, thank you for the warm welcome.

    I have sadly tried that, and pretty much everything else I could think of... I have asked several friends who have Windows 7, and none of them have any idea/encountered this problem before.

    But thanks for trying, really appreciate any help I can get.

    It could be a issue specific to that game. You might check to see if there may be any updates or patches for the game at it's website available to download and install that may address this.

    When both are open, check in Task Manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) to see if they are both using the same process. If they are different processes, then there is nothing you can do.
    • Under the Applications tab, right click on each listed opened window for it and click on Go To Process.

    There are no new patches or updates at all...

    The thing is, in the screenshot I posted, the icon to the left is always pinned to the taskbar, while the right one appears only when I have the game client running (I play in window mode), and if I start up 2 game clients, I get 3 icons in total (the pinned one + 1 more for each client)...

    Just to be sure, this isn't suppose to be like this, right? Since every other program gets combined, except for World of Warcraft.

    I would say that it seems to be just a issue with WOW. As long as it's running ok, I wouldn't worry about it. Hopefully a update for WOW in the future will resolve it. :)
