SeaMonkey 2.40 on Windows 8.0 Pro is minimizing EVERY tab SEPARATELY
to the task bar. When I go to click on the icon on the task bar to
bring up SeaMonkey I see a long list on the screen of ALL tabs and I
cannot just click on the icon and bring up SeaMonkey. I have to
CHOOSE a specific tab in the list and bring up that tab and then the
others are brought up with it.
This looks to me like an OS feature, not a SM feature.
In earlier versions of Windows (I have Win7), you could control this
behavior by setting the Taskbar properties. Here are the Win7
instructions; they're probably similar on Win8 but I can't guarantee it:
Right-click an empty area on the Taskbar and choose "Properties."
In the dialog that appears, on the "Taskbar" tab, there's an option for
"Taskbar buttons:" with a pull-down list:
[Always combine, hide labels]
[Combine when taskbar is full]
The third option will do what you're describing. Choose a different one
and you'll get different results.
You don't have to unlock the taskbar to do this.
War doesn't determine who's right, just who's left.
