How to change the view for open programs in the taskbar in KDE?


I am using KDE Plasma 5. In the attached picture look at the panels at the bottom. They are from the attached monitor on the right, and my laptop on the left. They have full tab sized sets for the programs that I've opened. I don't want them in that way. I want the panel/taskbar to have just icons of the open programs with maybe a counter on top of them to represent the number of instances open of the specific program. How do I achieve this in KDE.

why ?

can you give an example of why you need the same program running 1,2,3,4,5 instances

what kde theme and icons are you using ?
have you ran through the settings in "configure desktop"
