Panel Settings Application Menu

I would like to have separate instances of the same program show up as separate items in the Application menu.  That is how it always used to be.  On my new Ubuntu with XFCE installation instances of the same program show up as one with a number showing how many instances there are.

Can I change that?

Thanks.

Re: Panel Settings Application Menu

Are you referring to the grouping of the applications on the panel (window buttons plugin)? If so, there is an option in the settings to disable this grouping (see: https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-panel/tasklist).

If you are talking about a menu, can you provide some more information? I'm unaware of any menu system that groups application instances.

Please send us a screenshot of tasklist-settings shown in https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-panel/tasklist.

English:
Menu -> Settings -> Panel -> Objects -> Tasklist -> Edit

German:
Menü -> Einstellungen -> Leiste -> Objekte -> Fensterknöpfe -> Bearbeiten

It is Ubuntu 20.04 running as a virtual machine on a Debian 10 host with KVM hypervisor.

Re: Panel Settings Application Menu

Thats the wrong screenshot.

We need the Screenshot of Setting-Dialog of "Window Buttons".

Mark "Window Buttons" in this List and click on Settings.

Thank you.

Aha!  That was it. 

I set window grouping to "Never" and now it is as I wanted.

Thanks.
