Windows 7 - Problem with stacking icons RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a curious issue.  We are Win7SP1(64bit), Office 2010 Pro Plus (32bit), document management plugin to Outlook.

    Here is the issue.  With Outlook open, if you open a word doc from the document management plugin, the word icon in the taskbar stacks under the outlook icon.  If you open the word application by itself without opening a document from the plugin, you get a word icon separate from the outlook icon.  Everything works ok on a system with minimul applications installed.  However, a workstation that has all company apps on it, the work icon stacks under outlook.  It is not a space issue on taskbar.  Does not matter what the setting is in the taskbar properties for the taskbar buttons, icon size, location, etc.

  • Hi,

    Please open Properties of Task Bar, then choose Never Combine for Task Bar button. This will make system never combine the icons in Taskbar.

    Also, I cannot find the document management plugin you mentioned above in my Outlook add-ins, for Office product related question, please post a thread at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/officeitpro for help.
