Change the Taskbar Group Size

By default taskbar grouping will happen when you have three or more of the same program windows open. 
There is a registry key to change the settings so that, if you prefer, Windows XP will wait till you open even
more of the same program windows before they start to group.

* Open your registry and find or create the key below.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Advanced]
"TaskbarGroupSize"=dword:00000003


It's currently set at 3. Change this to whatever number you wish explorer to group at. i.e. change it to dword:00000008
if you wanted explorer to group on 8, or dword:00000005 if you want explorer to group on 5.

Exit your registry; you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.
