Hi Everybody,
   I am not able to group similar taskbar buttons even though the option to group them is check in the taskbar properties. Any suggestions why this is happening and what can be done to fix this issue.

Thanks a lot!

Explain a bit more.

What version of windows are you using?
Are you referring to a particular application?
Do the buttons get grouped for some applications?
How many windows did you have open at the same time?
How many from each group?
Do you use any alternate shells/extensions - Aston shell, Windows blinds, etc.?
Is the taskbar in its default location, having default size?

Anything you think might be relevant...

Found the solution! User needs to have full permission for the advanced subkey under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\
Advanced]. It works now.
