THIS is is the correct response. One can also set the task bar such that
the open applications are not stacked up under the icon that launches them.
In other words, one can set it up to appear on the task bar in the
'classical' 'legacy' manner, where each open application uses up a task bar
area of its own. I like it stacked, and once the paradigm is learned and
familiar, it is quite intuitive and practical.
