    Taskbar grouping is turned off but some windows still get grouped


    Hello

    I usually keep my taskbar on the "group when full" setting, but LibreOffice documents still get grouped even tho the taskbar is not full and even if i turn the setting off altogether.
    Its a real pain when trying to quickly copy information from one document to another.
    Is there another setting or is this specific to the application?

    :)

    regarding windows 10 home group options

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Let me assist you.

    These may be the below possible reasons of you facing the issue. Please go through the points.

    • If a Home group already exists on your network, you'll be asked to join it instead of creating a new one.
    • If your PC belongs to a domain, you can join a home group but you can't create one. You can get to libraries and devices on other home group PCs, but you can't share your own libraries and devices with the home group.
    If both the above scenarios doesn’t imply, then I would suggest you try the below steps.

    Steps:


    • Switch to an Administrator user account, in case you are not using one.

    • Run a Home group Troubleshooter to fix the issue.
    Refer the below steps to run a Home group Troubleshooter.


    • Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Control Panel

    • Type Troubleshooting in the search bar on the
      Control Panel.

    • Click on View all on the left navigation pane. Click on
      Home group.

    • Click on Advanced on the Home group troubleshooter dialog box and click on
      Run as administrator (Enter the credentials if required).

    • Click on Next and follow onscreen instruction complete the
      Home group troubleshooter

    GROUP POLICIES IN WINDOWS 10

    You can change Group Policies by opening Group Policy Editor first. You can open it by following these steps:

    • Log in an administrator account. If you are already logged in as an administrator, proceed to step 2.
    • Press Windows + R to open Run.
    • Type gpedit.msc and press Enter.

    After opening Group Policy Editor, you can now make the necessary changes that you want.

    Should you have more concerns, feel free to post.

    Regards.

    Taskbar grouping is turned off but some windows still get grouped

    Show Local users and Groups


    Hello Frank, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    If you have the Windows 10 Home edition, then it will not have Local Users and Groups (lusrmgr.msc) included in it. It's only available in the Pro and Enterprise editions instead.

    If you like, you could use step 3 in OPTION THREE of the tutorial below list users in a group.
