    group thumbnail previews but not the taskbar elements


    currently I have this situation

    I like that the previews are shown together, but if, in the taskbar, I move one of the actual windows [like the middle window ''puushh''], then all three windows are moved in the taskbar.
    I want the actual windows to not to be glued, but still l want to have all the thumbnail previews show up when I summon only one.

    is this possible?

    I don't have the final answer but all I can think is to right click on those windows and see if "move" or options show up.. but maybe you are asking for something they didn't incorporate into windows..

    I don't understand what you mean.

    When I right click the windows you show in your first picture.. I get "move"..

    But I don't think this is what you want to do.. I think you'll have to continue looking through all the taskbar options.. also try clicking things and holding Ctrl, or Alt, and Shift clicking...

    or even the Windows button and clicking..

    hope that makes sense.. like for example if you click to sort a column and hold shift click.. etc..
