You may encounter an error displaying Windows 7 icons on the taskbar next to it. There are several steps you can take to fix this problem. We will do it shortly.

While holding down the Shift key, right-click the grouped button (icon) in my system tray that you want to create all windows from, release the Shift key and click Show Above Windows, or you can – be in a window next to it.

  1. Open the properties of the taskbar and start menu by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, choosing Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking the taskbar and Start menu.

  2. In the Taskbar Display section, select one of the options from the list of taskbar buttons:

    • Merge, Always Hide Labels
    • Merge when taskbar is full
    • Never merge
  3. All icons on the taskbar are movable, so you can rearrange them in any order. You can also right-click on our own Start Menu icon and select Pin to Taskbar from the context menu. For even more customization, right-click an empty portion of the taskbar and select Properties.

    To use small characters, select the Use small marker check box. Check the box to use large visible icons.

  4. Click OK.

For Windows 8 and Windows – Next to the taskbar button map, use the drop-down menu to select Never Merge. Check out the tip at the bottom of this page to find out about the other option you have. In Windows Vista and Windows XP, clear the Group similar taskbar buttons check box to disable grouping of taskbar buttons.

But you find it difficult, for example, to hide the labels + never merge them before, so as not to get dirty; interested superuser:Is there a way to hide the taskbar labels and not the 3 taskbar buttons?

There may be confusion as to what you mean by “stack”. If this is not a grouping, do you mean that your computer’s taskbar has icons in the second row (taskbar with a double main area)? In this case, unlock the new taskbar (if it is locked), place your cursor at the top of the taskbar, it turns into a double pointer, then drag down to reduce the height of the taskbar.
