How to group shortcuts on the taskbar by using TaskbarGroups

  3. To create a group for the taskbar, just select the Add taskbar group option.Add taskbar group option
  4. Give it an appropriate title and set a group icon for it.
  5. You may now add program shortcuts to the group.
  6. With the group pinned to the taskbar, feel free to click on the pinned group and open the overlay including all grouped programs.
  7. Finally, just click on the desired program in order to launch it.

There is no secret that the Windows 10 taskbar is customizable in terms of design, location, included items, and more.

Being able to group shortcuts on the taskbar is helpful, especially given the fact that you can create additional groups and associate different shortcuts.

Even better, do note that TaskbarGroups currently supports all taskbar layouts you may think of using, including on the side and even multi-monitor setups.

If that’s your wish as well and you like the idea of showing the taskbar on both monitors in Windows 10, check out this detailed guide right away.
