  1. Combine Taskbar Buttons is not working after update


    I have a Lenovo T470 laptop with Windows 10. Last night Windows update ran updates and now my Taskbar buttons do not combine anymore.

    I have reviewed the Taskbar configuration, moved the Combine Taskbar Buttons pulldown to other options and then back to "Always, hide labels"

    I still see one icon for every instance/window I have open, instead of grouped ones (i.e. all Excell sheets in one icon, all Outlook elements in one icon, etc.)

    It's annoying to have so many icons there - How do I restore the taskbar function so it groups my similar Windows neatly again?

    Thank you!

    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.

    Stop Taskbar Buttons from Combining!

    I noticed that on my Windows 10 laptop, my taskbar buttons combine even though I have the setting for "never combine."

    I changed the settings to "always combine" and then back to "never combine" and it still didn't work. I also did the same for "combine when taskbar is full" and it didn't work.

    Does anyone know about this quirk and ho to fix it????

    Thank you!
