Never Combine Taskbar Buttons is finally back on Windows 11

In a surprising and much-welcomed move, Microsoft has brought back the "Never Combine Taskbar Buttons" feature to regular Windows 11 users with the release of the 2023-10 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 Version 22H2 (KB5031354). This update has been long-awaited by users who were accustomed to the feature's functionality in earlier Windows versions, and it marks another step in Microsoft's ongoing efforts to refine and enhance the Windows 11 experience.

The "Never Combine Taskbar Buttons" feature is not entirely new to the Windows. It was a staple in earlier Windows versions, allowing users to keep individual taskbar buttons for each open application or window, even when multiple instances of the same program were running. This feature made it easier for users to quickly switch between open windows, as they could simply click on the program's icon in the taskbar, and it would display a list of all open windows associated with that program.
