Another neat aspect of the Windows 7 Taskbar icons is the ability to group multiple running instances of a program under one icon, eliminating clutter. For example, look at the blue Internet Explorer (IE) icon shown above.

If you look closely, you can see what look like a number of open windows hiding behind the icon. That's an indication that there are multiple IE windows open.
