    Can we bring back the 'Never Combine Taskbar' option?


    I get how minimalism is a big goal right now, but as a matter of ease of access, I really depend on never combining the taskbar as often as possible. This goes even with having dozens of windows open. Not combining the taskbar also helps with only showing the window on multiple screens, greatly improving desktop organization, allowing me to pull up a window, on the screen I need it, without cluttering the taskbar of other windows. Having the 'Never Combine' option is definitely a utility, and not just a visual feature that is tied to minimalism. The option should not have been removed enti

    Problem with a combine taskbar icons.

    Hello,

    In Windows 10, you can personalize the settings of your taskbar. If there are multiple applications opened, same applications will be combined under one taskbar button. If you want to change this setting, we suggest that you follow the steps listed below:

    • Press the Start button.
    • Click on the Settings app.
    • Select Personalization.
    • At the left side of your window, click on Taskbar.
    • Under Combine taskbar buttons, choose Never.

    Kindly update us with the results and if you have further queries, feel free to post back.
