Question: Can you consolidate processes into Taskbar?

So it appears that (in Windows) C8 shows various processes as separate icons in the Taskbar. At one point I had -5- Cubase icons going at the same time, which is distracting since they’re all the same -program-. Any way to make appear as before: ie. ONE icon in the tray?




Minimizing and maximizing is chore now where with every app I’ve ever used in the last 3 decades it has not even been something I’ve ever had to think about.

My issue is that they crowd out everything in the Taskbar… and you can’t close them from the Taskbar.

I’m using Win 8.1, and all of my Cubase icons line up behind each other on the taskbar.
