Windows 11 may be gaining a feature to never combine taskbar buttons, according to a leak.

One of the most wanted features for Windows 11 users, enthusiasts, and fans is arguably the ability to never combine taskbar buttons. One of the most popular Google searches for the feature indicates that there is obviously need for solutions. For reinstating some of the traditional start menu components, people have been getting around by utilising third-party tools like StartAllBack and ExplorerPatcher, among others. A recent leak, however, raises the possibility that Windows 11 may soon formally provide the ability to never combine taskbar buttons.

Albacore, a Windows fanatic on Twitter, was able to find proof of this in the most recent Windows Server preview version 25246 for Insiders, which was made available earlier today.

Albacore issues a warning, noting that the underlying code is flawed and that this feature still appears to be in its very early stages of development. Additionally, even if its feature ID, “29785186,” is available, it cannot be enabled using a tool like the ViVeTool because it has been forcibly disabled due to the situation it is in right now.

It is currently difficult to predict when this will be made available because Insider builds may or may not eventually make hidden features available to everyone.
