  1. "Duplicate" shortcuts on the taskbar get deleted


    I have a weirdly specific but (to me) very annoying problem.

    I have two shortcuts to Chrome on my Taskbar, or at least I used to. The first is the default shortcut. The second opens up a specific page in Incognito mode using some command line stuff. I use it about 10 times a day for work.

    It appears that Windows 10 is reading these as duplicates, and deleting the second one every time it goes to sleep. I have to add it again every time I wake up or restart my computer. I've actually created a shortcut on my C drive and keep pinning that to my taskbar, but it disappears at regular intervals.

    Any idea how to stop this from happening? Weird work-arounds are fine, if you have 'em.

    Thanks!

    :)

    Enter on keypad " no. + # "

    petrib is correct. It is a shortcut to SIM numbers.

    Numbers on your SIM might not be in the position you think. Just because they appear sorted in alphabetical order in the contacts list doesn't mean that they appear in that same order on the SIM. On the SIM they appear in the order in which you input them,
    unless you delete a number in which case the next one entered takes its place.

    "Duplicate" shortcuts on the taskbar get deleted

    Hello ClintEmsley and welcome to TenForums *Smile

    I wonder if W10 is simply combining taskbar buttons rather than deleting them? There is an option in Taskbar properties to never combine, does this help?
