Change Your Taskbar Group Size

Many  of  us  do not like our  taskbar cluttered  with multiple applications that are running. To overcome this problem, Windows uses the automatic grouping feature that automatically groups two or more windows of the same program and labels the group with the name of the parent application. However, if you would like window grouping to take place only after a specific number of windows have been opened, you would have to tweak your registry settings. Once done, Windows will start window grouping only after a specific number  of windows of the same application are open. Follow these steps to enable task bar grouping after a specific number of windows are open:
extend  Download the registry file from This registry file can be used with Windows Vista as well.
extend Double-click the registry file to add the contents to the registry.
extend Restart your system.
extend Now click 'Start', type 'regedit' in the 'Search' box and press [Enter].
extend Go to registry folder->


extend You will be able to view the 'TaskbarGroupSize' registry key.
extend Double-click it, type an appropriate integer and click 'OK'. If you type the integer '5', Windows will start automatic grouping after five  windows of the same application are open.
