Showing All Open Workbooks in the Taskbar

New Contributor

I just bought a new laptop, and I am used to seeing each individual Excel workbook or Word document spread out along the taskbar.  I don't like them grouped, I like to be able to choose the exact document or workbook I am working in.  I can't figure out how to get them ungrouped on this laptop.  None of the Help or Search things I've tried have provided the steps I need to take.  Can someone help me with this?  Thanks in advance

If you have Windows 11, it appears that feature has been removed: 

Hi, thanks for your reply. I got to that section, but I don't see the Combine Taskbar Buttons in my options. I have taskbar overflow and behaviors. Neither of those contain Combine Taskbar buttons. Any other ideas?
Hi, thanks again, I just saw that part about Windows 11, and I am pretty sure that's what I have. Doggone them, anyway! I have submitted feedback asking for that feature back!
