    Is there a way to move taskbar tabs individually?


    I'm trying to re-arrange the order of tabs in taskbar but those that are similar, move together in groups.
    Let me explain with an example:
    I want to place the Firefox tab between 2 explorer tabs but windows won't let me

    I start draging Firefox to the left:


    And Windows automatically moves Firefox tab past the 2 explorer tabs



    I want to place the Firefox tab between those 2 tabs.
    And a similar problem happens if I want to switch the order of those 2 explorer tabs: Windows won't let me place "Program Files (x86)" before "Program Files". If I try to drag one, both of them move at the same time in a group.

    Is there a way to disable this "grouping" of tabs?
