    duplicate taskbar icon


    Within the last couple of days I noticed that I now have two icon pinned to the taskbar for my Radeon Settings...and no apparent way to delete (or even hide) the extra.

    Anyone else seen this and / or know a way to get rid of the extra one?

    :)

    System Icons on taskbar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Are you referring to the clock system icon on the taskbar?

    If so, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.

    Windows 10 problem with duplicated icons in taskbar, broken Jump Lists


    Hello,


    I‘ve been recently having a problem with duplicated items in taskbar and broken Jump Lists. I‘m now using Windows 10 but this problem occurred in Windows 8.1 too but then it somehow fixed itself. Some programs that I pin to taskbar have a tendency to duplicate themselves when clicked on. For now, I‘ve noticed this behaviour only in Skype and Spotify but it‘s still very annoying since duplicate icons take valuable taskbar space and even more—make Jump Lists of those programs broken, meaning that you can still see tasks program developers provided but after you click them nothing happens.


    I‘ve tried loads of times pinning, repinning, deleting whole User Pinned folder from %appdata%/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Quick Launch, clearing Jump List folders manually and automatically with Command Prompt commands as suggested here with no luck. The only thing I did achieve was when I pinned Skype to taskbar in my other user account, then copied the newly created shortcut from Use Pinned folder to my User Pinned folder—this made Skype Jump Lists working but duplicate icon in taskbar remained.


    I‘ve recently found a tutorial which may force taskbar to use only one icon per app but I can‘t check this right now as 7+ Taskbar Tweaker isn‘t yet officially available for Windows 10 users.


    Thank you for taking your time and reading my message, any suggestions would be appreciated,





    P. S. I don‘t know if this is related but I can‘t pin any Control Panel item to Quick Access whilst I can pin folders. Interesting side of this is that pinned Control Panel items appear in File Explorer's Jump List but after clicked I get a message that item is unavailable and that it might have been moved, renamed or removed.

    duplicate taskbar icon

    Duplicate icons on taskbar in IntelliJ – Windows 10

    I have an issue with IntelliJ IDEA and Android Studio when I pin the icons to my taskbar. If I click on the icon, the actual window opens in a smaller duplicate icon on the taskbar rather than opening the window in the pinned icon.

    I have tried uninstalling with Revo Uninstaller Pro and reinstalling, but to no avail. Copying the .exe file directly to the AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar folder doesn't work – the icon does not appear.

    This is not a duplicate of this question: Some taskbar pinned icons are duplicated when an instance of the application is running

    I have tried all the suggested solutions from the earlier question, to check, but there is still a duplicate icon, so maybe it is a problem with Windows 10 specifically. I do not have any problems with any other programs.
