How to Prevent Internet Explorer Window Open Multiple Tabs in Taskbar

Even Microsoft removed IE from Windows 10, but there are users who still are using Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1. And there are some users who use IE as main or as the second browser. And you know that IE will display newly opened tabs in a stack in the taskbar which is really annoying. So when you are working on your project for example and there are numerous tabs opened in IE, so when you minimize the browser and want to open it again it will show all tabs in the stack. Today I will show you how to disable that feature in Internet Explorer.

1) The first thing you need to do is open up IE settings, click on the gear icon on the right side and from list select "Internet options".
2) And now in newly opened window click on "Tabs" button.
3) And there you simply need to uncheck "Show previews for individual tabs in the taskbar" line.
Now click on "OK" button twice and restart IE. It will never show opened tabs in a stack in taskbar anymore.
