Double Google Chrome icon on the taskbar - Windows 10

I installed Google Chrome and then pinned it to the taskbar, and it looked like this:

But everytime I click on that icon, a new one appears!

I've tried to unpin the first one on the left, and then pin the new one on the right, but I can't pin that one because there is no option to pin it (I translated the options to english):

I've tried using other methods that include going to C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar and C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application but they don't work either. If you can, please help me!

Thank you so much :)

Hi,

Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

I would suggest you try the following steps and see if it helps:

Method 1: Unpin Google chrome and end restart explorer.exe from task manager.

1. Right click on the Taskbar and select Task Manager.

2. Go to Processes Tab and find explorer.exe.

3. Right-Click on Explorer.exe and select End Task

4. After some time, click on Windows key + R to go to the run command and type "explorer.exe" and click enter.

Now try and pin the it again using Drag and Drop. Drag Google Chrome icon towards the taskbar and then drop it on taskbar.

Method 2: If this doesn't help, I would suggest you run an SFC Scan and see if it helps.

Follow the steps to run the System File Checker

  1. On the Search bar type “cmd” and click ctrl + shift + Enter to open the Elevated Command Prompt. (If prompted for a password, type the password and click Allow)
  2. Type “sfc /scannow” and hit Enter.
  3. Exit Command Prompt.

Hope this helps. Please reply if you have further related queries.

Close all you chrome sessions.

Unpin Chrome.

Open this in the FIle Manager (copy / paste in file explorer):

%AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\ImplicitAppShortcuts

Inside there is a folder (mine is just one, yours... I don't know)

You will see some folder that has a shortcut to chrome,

Launch chrome from that shortcut.

Pin that chrome.

That should do it.

I found yet another way, nice and simples...

"If chrome is on your taskbar unpin it and then open start menu and drag chrome to your desktop, then open chrome and it will place an icon on your taskbar, then pin that icon to your taskbar and then delete the icon on your desktop, problem solved for me."
