Being able to create and pin groups to taskbar looks much more organized than having individual items listed one by one. So, instead of having a long list of items that are running on your taskbar, you can actually group them. This can be done using the taskbar group utility. Which is a free program used in windows that enables you to put or rather create group/s of multiple shortcuts that can be accessed from the taskbar.
This makes sense as it saves much on the space available on the taskbar, that is usually occupied by multiple separated shortcuts, when they can actually be placed in a group.
