As I mentioned, the free version of WindowTabs will allow you to group three windows into a single multi-tabbed interface. As such, you could add Pictures to the mix, as shown. If you attempt to add another window, you will receive a simple message reminding you of the three window limitation.

Tabs? isn't that what the Windows Task bar is for???
Task bar and tabs
In general, one has to make decisions when moving from one version of the operating system (or Office, or any other application) to the other. We can either try to work the same way as we did in the old version, and try to configure the new software to look like the old one, or adjust our behaviour and ways of usage to the new (and changed) features and possibilities of the new version. I have tried both approaches over the time, and I cannot tell which one is better. Nowadays, I usually switch to the new style and interface quickly because I believe that the little extra time that I invest in learning the new ways pays off at the end of the day.
It also offers functionality above what the taskbar does. I am not aware of any keyboard shortcut to switch between instances of a program (I know Win+1 etc but that doesn't do instances). WindowTabs lets you do alt+left and alt+right switch between instances, and because all the instances are visible on screen at once it's completely deterministic; you know exactly where to go. So personally, I find this to be much faster.
It also treats the grouped windows as one. All the grouped windows resize together, and move together. Again, this is functionality over what the taskbar provides.
I have wanted tabbed explorer for a while, so was impressed to see that you can have the tabs show only for programs you specify. I am finding I am relying on the tabbed functionality very quickly though, so have turned it back on for all programs. This includes IE which already has tabs, because it's nice to be able to quickly jump to other IE instances. This is something I have found cumbersome in the past.
Article needed a couple more screen shots
i just prefer the task bar
Tabs v. Taskbar
Really just another option and more options are good IMHO...
