Right now on my PI, anytime I open a window it has its own button on the taskbar. If I open 10 more windows, there will be 10 more buttons on the taskbar. I simply want to group them into single button. So, when I click on this button, it will popup list of all the opened windows. Where is the option to have PI do this?

  • The default desktop environment (DE) used on Raspbian is PIXEL, which was recently forked from LXDE, which has been around for about 10 years; you'll notice they have their own forum and documentation linked there. I mention this because it may be easier to research that way; PIXEL itself doesn't have much documentation but should be very similar in most respects. Things like taskbars are part of the DE.

To do this, first right click on the taskbar, go to "Taskbar (Window List) Settings", and check off "Combine multiple applications into a single button".
