    Chrome won't launch when pinned to taskbar


    Hello

    I have chrome pinned to the task bar but it won't simply launch the application like it does with all the my other icons. I have to keep right clicking it and then choosing chrome within the menu - kinda annoying.

    Is there a way to change this behaviour so it will just launch the browser when I click it ?

    :)

  2. Unable to download app from Microsoft Store

    It seems that this is a Chrome issue. Have you tried resetting Chrome?



    On the other hand, we suggest that you open Microsoft Store app instead of opening Store through Chrome. The following are steps on how to open Microsoft Store on Windows 10:

    • To open Microsoft Store on Windows 10, select the Microsoft Store icon on the taskbar.
    • If you don't see the Microsoft Store icon on the taskbar, it might have been unpinned. To pin it, select the Start button, type
      Microsoft Store, press and hold (or right-click) Microsoft Store, then choose More > Pin
      to taskbar
      .
    • If Microsoft Store won't launch, get more info at Microsoft Store does
      not launch
      .


    Regards.

    Hi,

    Follow these simple steps:

    1. Open Chrome

    2. After having 2 Chrome icon, Unpin the icon that's not open

    3. Right click the other, choose pin from taskbar

    Next time you click Chrome it won't appear 2 icon on the taskbar.
