Hi,

this is a tough one to try and explain. When I have, say, more than ten
applications open I get a little up and down arrow thing on the right-hand
side of the taskbar, which I can use to switch between applications 1-10 &
11-20 for example. Now, I don't like this. Is there a way I can switch it
off? I'm sure I switched it off on my old laptop, but I can't see where to
do it on this new one. I prefer all the applications to show on the same
bar.

Thanks for any help

Right-click on the Taskbar and select Properties >
Taskbar (tab) and uncheck "Group similar taskbar buttons"
and click Apply.

You could make the taskbar taller, is that feasible?

Thanks for the reply Carey, but that's not what I mean. That feature is
already turned off, as I hate that too.

I've taken a screenshot to try and explain a bit better:
