Windows programs typically show a task-bar item per "main window" - with 
varying interpretations of what should be considered to be a "main window".

In general Rev shows a task-bar item for each stack.
However, there are exceptions - for instance, in the IDE, script editor 
windows don't appear in the task-bar - so there must be some control 
over this. (Sorry - I've never looked into it, so I don't know any more 
off-hand - if no-one else chimes in, I'll look around the settings on 
the script editor stacks and see if I can figure out how they avoid 
appearing in the list).

btw - Palettes also do not appear in the task-bar list.
