CS6 anyway to contain floating document windows?

Hi

I've been using CS4 for a loooooong time. I have CS6, but always avoid using it, as I work with lots of files at once and prefer to be able to drag each document around within whatever app I'm using, mostly Fireworks and illustrator. If I move a document within CS6, I get another window in my Windows taskbar. After a few minutes, my taskbar is full of CS6 documents.

 

I've looked hard and can't find 1, but is there a way to stop all these documents apearing in my taskbar? The way I work; it's almost unusable.

Do the options under Window Menu>Arrange not do what you want?

Thanks for the reply.

 

Nope, I tried all the options there. Grouping helps a little though.

I added a screengrab of my taskbar (windows.jpg), which may explain the problem a little better.

Still unable to find a solution to this.

I sometimes work with 10 iamges at once, and need to see them all at the same time, which is impossible with CS6.

Also, when I drag one document/image around, the taskbar icon for that particular one vanishes until I let go, which makes it re-appear again - constantly resizing all other apps in the taskbar.

This is aweful functionality and I find myself going back to ancient versions Adobe apps and also find myself drifting to alternative brands, you knwo the ones I mean.
