Windows 10: Taskbar grouping is turned off but some windows still get grouped

    Taskbar grouping is turned off but some windows still get grouped


    I usually keep my taskbar on the "group when full" setting, but LibreOffice documents still get grouped even tho the taskbar is not full and even if i turn the setting off altogether.
    Its a real pain when trying to quickly copy information from one document to another.
    Is there another setting or is this specific to the application?

    I see the same when having 2 or more instances of File Explorer, Firefox, Internet Explorer and others open. Moving the mouse over them gives a pop-up preview for making a choice. But I haven't looked for a solution, just have gotten used to it. I have a feeling that may be a minor security feature for offices to hide but not close windows.

    Programs can be set up to group into the open task, all tasks that are running.
