How to group multiple open windows into tabs?

Hello,

I had WindowsXP reinstalled, and now all my settings are gone.

I used to have all similar programs be grouped into tabs (if multiple windows are opened), now... it's just multiple tabs and not grouped anymore.

By grouping i mean  - if i had multiple InternetExplorer windows opened (typically more than 5), they were all grouped into ONE tab on the bottom, and i could open those windows from there. Similar with the 'File Explorer" - they were all grouped into one tab...

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You!

Right-click an empty space on the taskbar.
Choose the Properties command from the context menu.
Check the Group Similar Taskbar Buttons check box and click OK.

XP will manage the grouping by itself, and usually only groups when there isn't enough space on the bottom taskbar.

However, the option could be disabled: Right-click the taskbar in a blank area, select Properties. In the Properties box, ensure 'Group similar taskbar buttons' is checled and press OK.
