  1. Duplicate office 2016 icons in taskbar


    When I pin Office 2016 to my taskbar, then click on it opens a new icon on the taskbar instead of using the one already there.

    Also, not sure if this is related. But when I right click on this new icon and go to the "tasks" menu with the "New email message, new appointment, etc" links none of them work. Nothing happens when I click them.

    Tried repairing and reinstalling 2016 with no luck.

    :)

  2. Problem Pinning Outlook 2016 to Taskbar: Creates Two Icons

    I have other 64-bit applications pinned to my taskbar, Office 2016 programs (Word and Excel) and third-party programs (Photoshop and Firefox), and none of them open duplicate icons. Only Outlook 2016. So this is not a problem with all 64-bit programs. At
    least not on my computer.

    Please advise.

    Thank you.

    Problem Pinning Outlook 2016 to Taskbar: Creates Two Icons

    This over here worked for me, all I had to do was run outlook from the shortcut he provided, and then right click and pin to taskbar as normal. No more duplicates.:

    Try unpinning the first icon. Then open outlook and re-pin the icon that shows.
     
  5. As soon as I pin that Icon it creates another duplicate. Weird.

    Edit: Nevermind, this is resolved. I was on a preview build and just upgraded to final retail version. Issue is fixed.

  6. Not sure if the following will fix the duplicate icon (I uninstalled/reinstalled to correct that issue), but this fixed the tasks on right click issue (works for Outlook 2016):

    Good luck!
