Diamond In the Rough: Task Bar

If you have multiple instances of the same program running (like several web pages open at the same time), Windows combines these pages into one group (the same is true if you have multiple Word documents or Excel files). This may or may not be to your liking. To separate them
1. Right click on the Task Bar
2. Select Properties
3. Click on the Task Bar tab
4. Check (or uncheck depending on your preference) the box for "Group Similar Task Bar Button"
