It have been using IE and on my start page when I would be working on two sites/pages (whatever it would be called??) I would minimize one go to the other then when done there minimize that one and go to the first minimized in the task bar maxamize make changes edit etc. and just keep doing that back and forth worked well for me. But now only I can only have one minimized in the task bar at a time and it is making making these changes and editing a real pain....any help would be very much appreciated. Other than change to a different browser I am happy with my set up on/with IE for now.

Thanks so much in advance,
La Princess

The next version of IE will have tabbed browsing which will eradicate the need to keep minimizing and maximizing, you just click on a tab.

There are other IE based browsers around with tabbed browsing and in my opinion safer than IE too. Slim Browser has lots more functions than IE with a plethora of privacy and other functions and you can access Windows Updates without opening IE. Maxthon is quite similar.

However, I'm a Firefox fanatic!

Firefox is a great web browser to use that you don't have tto minimize you can have more then one in a single window.

If you look at your Taskbar properties you don't have 'Group similar taskbar buttons' ticked do you? This would put all your IE tasks into the same button which might be what you're seeing. :thumbsup:
