I don't need them combined.Instructions are here:How to use the taskbar in Windows 11If you want to change how taskbar buttons group together, press and hold or right-click any empty space on the taskbar, select Taskbar settings > Combine taskbar buttons and then select from the list: Always, hide labels.

    Moving the taskbar

    Hi Kim,

    You can customize your taskbar to pin your favorite apps to it, move it to where you want to display on your screen, and specify how taskbar buttons group together when you have more than one window open. To address your question, we suggest
    that you follow these steps on how to move your taskbar to a different location on the screen:

    • Open Settings and choose Personalization.
    • Select Taskbar.
    • Under Taskbar location on the screen, click the drop-down menu and select
      Bottom.

    Keep us posted if you need additional help.

    Would like Cascade Windows etc. on Combined taskbar buttons

    Currently can right click in the taskbar outside of any application taskbar buttons, and select "Cascade windows", ("Show windows stacked", "Show windows side by side")

    When application taskbar buttons are Grouped, would like to see a right-click option on each of the application buttons for "Cascade..., Show windows stacked..., Show windows side by side" that would expand just the list of open windows for that particular
    application.

    Taskbar Scroll Bar Removal

    Hi Nick,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Follow the below mentioned steps and check if it helps.

    • Right-click on an empty area of the Windows taskbar. Click to clear the checkmark from the "Lock the Taskbar" option if needed.
    • Then right-click an empty area of the taskbar, and then select "Properties."
    • Click to place a check in the "Group Similar Taskbar Buttons" box. Click "Apply" followed by "OK" to confirm the changes. This option combines multiple instances of the same application into a single taskbar button. If this does not remove the scroll arrows,
      continue to the next step.
    • Hover your mouse cursor over the border between the Windows taskbar and the desktop until a double-arrow icon replaces the standard pointer.
    • Click the taskbar border and drag it upward to double the height of the taskbar. Any icons on the second row will be displayed, and the scroll arrows will vanish.

    Keep us posted for any concerns with windows, we're glad to assist you.
