Windows 11 Work around for task manager and "create shortcut missing in right click"

A few big mistakes from MS to work around;

First, there's no frigging ungroup task bar icons, second no task bar right click to get task manager.

Grouped icons is a security risk, I don't want all my activity on display when I hover, this is no acceptable, I've sent this issue in, but they seem determined removing ungroup entirely, they even disabled a registry fix, what's up with them this time around?

Type task manager from windows key, right click the icon, send it to the task bar.

Second work around, send it to the desktop, then right click, properties, create a shortcut so you have keyboard access to it.

Contributor and OSNN moderator points out,, right clicking on the start button also does the trick!

I sure hope MS abandons this minimalist approach, I'm fine with having "grouped icons" default, but not fine having no ungroup option.

I'm also not fine with no drag and drop to task bar, and I can't find "create desktop shortcut" in right click

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
