+I have created an MDI app based on the MFC DocView architecture in the latest version of Visual-Studio, which is working well.
However, when the application is running, and its minimised icon is displayed on the desktop TaskBar, all the open documents are displayed along side one-another. Is there a way I can get only the Document having the current Focus show on the minimised list.

(In case I am not explaining my problem properly, try opening Microsoft Word, and creating a few empty documents. Now click on the minimised Word Icon on the taskbar and you see all open documents displayed alongside each other. This is exactly what I am trying to solve. I only want one document to show up in this list. Is there a way ?)

Thanks you for your help.

What I have tried:

Nothing. I don't know where to begin. I guess this is something that is either possible and you know how to do, or it is not possible because that's just how Windows treats MDI applications. Please enlighten me.
