How to ungroup Items on panel
 
Hello I'm new to Linux I installed Linux Zorin but by default the items in panel are regrouped by type
example if I open two windows of firefox the both windows will be in same icon on taskbar and for any other software the same if I open two or three terminals all will be gathered in one icon
is it possible to ungroup items on panel and show every window separated then the others
Thank you

What window manager or desktop environment does zorin use?
I guess one is suppose to look at Ubuntu's docs.

You use LXPanel, according to DistroWatch.

1. Right click on a blank space on your task bar and select "Panel Settings." (Keep clicking around on the task bar if it doesn't show the right menu, you'll find it.
2. Click on the Panel Applets tab.
3. Highlight Application Launch and Task Bar.
4. Click on Preferences.
5. Click the Taskbar tab.
6. Untick "Combine multiple application windows into a single button."

Close it out and you should be all set.

I didn't find Panel setting I found Panel preference and it has no Panel Applets.

My linux is

Code:

NAME="Zorin OS"
VERSION="15.2"
ID=zorin
ID_LIKE=ubuntu
PRETTY_NAME="Zorin OS 15.2"
VERSION_ID="15"

Let's test something...

In your terminal, enter "which lxpanel" and see if you are using LXPanel at all. DistroWatch says you do. If it's not LXPanel, I'm not sure where the option is.

If there's no option and it *is* LXPanel, then you can find the panel (/home/config/LXPanel) (somewhere in there you should find a file called 'panel' and change

GroupedTasks=1

to

GroupedTasks=0

Then just save it and reload the panel with "lxpanelctl restart".
