I used this and it prevented me from going and getting my Windows Experience score, I had to go back in and change some *default* options away and it worked again. Something about performance counters and control panel - something I wouldn't be bothered to fiddle with!

Well the only reason I got it is cause I want the taskbar to do that related thing, where if there is 2 msn windows i want them to be one, yea know.

How can I do that?

Group similarly...
Not on Vista at the moment, but if you right click on the start menu and go to properties it is in there somewhere, whether you can change the number I don't know.

Interestingly tho tabbed messenger windows is something the messenger team wants to add in the next release of live messenger!

The option is called "Group similar taskbar buttons"
There's no way to change the number directly through the UI. Regedit to the rescue. :)

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
Create a new DWORD value called "TaskbarGroupSize"
Set the value to 2 (or whatever else you like)

do I need to restart after that?
My guess is that at least Explorer needs to be restarted, so you can either try killing and restarting explorer.exe via Task Manager, or just reboot the system.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
