Grouping application windows together is one thing I turn off when using Win 7.
I don't like grouping. That makes switching between windows needs more mouse movements, or clicks than necessary.

If Task Manager in Plasma-Desktop insists on grouping together and can't be disabled then I will look for task manager replacement.

The default is to group only when the taskbar is full, however can be disabled completely

Of course it can be turned off.

As you can see from the "Task manager Settings" dialog box shown in the above link, in the "Grouping and Sorting" section there is a pull-down labelled "Grouping:". There are three options that can be selected, the one shown is "Manually", the default is "By Program Name", and the other option is "Do Not Group".

Configure it however you like.

Enjoy.
