    Is this what you're after>

    If you want to group, or ungroup, similar taskbar buttons,
    1. Right click on the Taskbar
    2. Select Properties
    3. Check or Uncheck Group similar taskbar buttons

    Thnx Doofus, but that is not what I am after for. I am not sure if u are aware, but there is option on the taskbar that allowe you to actually scrol through the open programs, rather than having them taking space on the taskbar.

    Thnx again though ... as i said any help is welcome.

    That's not it either Doofus. That will customize your system tray to hide inactive icons. What I am talking about is the option that will group all opened programs in the right hand side corner of taskbar. From there you will be able to scroll through them rather than having them spread all over the task bar.

    Are you perhaps looking for only one button left with these little up and down arrows beside it (see attachment)? You have to expand other items on the taskbar to get it.
    Never heard of another scroll option.

    I have seen that hapening on the taskbar with only two programs opened. I don't know. I've been trying to figure this one out for the last week or so and I can't. I am giving up.

    Thnx to the all participants in this topic.

    First unlock your taskbar and then grab (move the cursor to the edge and when it changes to an doublesided arrow press and hold left mousebutton) any item you have on your taskbar, quicklaunch or addressbar or whatever, and expand it to squeeze your program buttons.
