In versions of Mathematica in Linux all new notebooks appeared as separate windows.

In Mathematica 9 for Windows 7, I have only 1 window in the taskbar now, and when I minimize notebooks they minimize into the bottom left corner.

I really enjoyed being able to glance down at my taskbar to see all windows currently open.

How do you have each notebook represent a new task in the taskbar?

I believe it might require combining the textbar at the top with with each notebook.

Alternatively, does anyone have any techniques for better window management in Windows?


"better window management in Windows" sounds awesome. Anyway, not sure it's exactly what you're looking for, but if you right-click on the taskbar and hit Properties -> Taskbar buttons -> Combine only if screen is full, you can disable the Windows 7 combining behavior entirely. That makes it a lot more like Windows XP and a lot of Linux distros.

  • Unfortunately Mathematica doesn't seem to respect that setting. No matter what setting I set under the taskbar Mathematica combines the windows into one task in the taskbar. – William Jan 28 '13 at 22:21
