(as you see Windows has three Explorer icons and Ubuntu has only one Files icon

Is it possible to uncombine/ungroup apps in Ubuntu?

To mimic the Windows taskbar, install the extension "Dash to Panel". It immediately provides a Windows style bar at the bottom of the screen. It has plenty of configuration options, including the option you are after, i.e., ungrouping application buttons. 'Dash to Panel" is an excellent extension.

    This is the amazing! You have made my life 10x easier with this plugin! I can confirm this works great with Ubuntu 18.04. – SS113 Jul 17 '18 at 1:34
  • After installation (at https://extensions.gnome.org/), the setting is found at Behaviour/Ungroup applications (Dash-to-Panel version: 23). – AlainD Sep 26 '19 at 11:55
  • Thanks a lot, that worked for me! And the app settings allow much more options than the regular Windows panel. The only thing I can't do is drag it by mouse to change it width... – Liker777 Jan 30 at 16:24

There is a taskbar extension available.

Unfortunately, the development of that extension was halted on 15 december. However, Dash to Panel fully covers the functionality of Taskbar.
