Previously, on Windows, if you had several internet windows open at once, they would be along your screen in a nice horizontal line, like this (imagine each ___ is an internet window):
___ ___ ___ ___
But now, most computers seem to be set to automatically force the internet windows to go into a pile, hidden in a window that you have to click first (usually says the number of windows, then 'Internet Explorer').
You have to click the first window, then the pile displays its self, like this:
and THEN you can click a window from the pile. The thing that causes this to happen is by leaving the 'Group similar taskbar buttons' option ticked (checked) in the properties menu.
To change this, you usually right-click, choose properties, then simply untick (uncheck) the 'Group similar buttons' option.
But on this computer, I can't right-click on the taskbar area. Anywhere else, fine, just not the taskbar. But I like my windows laid out in front of me, like a load of physical documents, not piled-up like a stack of paper meaning I have to click the pile and find the window I need before I can click it.
So how on earth do I get to the properties menu and change the group similar buttons option? The 'properties' menu under 'File' is not the same one.
