    It would be nice, but no.

    Blechk!, I hate pinned items, that's what Classic Start is for. I prefer a minimalist looking taskbar. Oh well

    In that case, luckily it only takes a second to drag an icon to the order you like within the other icons on the taskbar.

    When I try that it drags all the icons of the same type along with it though.

    Yes, that's normal for all icons/buttons on the taskbar for opened tabs/windows for the same program to drag together like that.

    Have the taskbar set to "Always combine" for icons helps make it not as bad.
