I’ve searched the community and I couldn’t find any similar posts for this topic.
I’m running Windows 10 Pro (1809) on a MSI GE-70 2PE Laptop. I install / uninstall & maintain all my software on the laptop very seamleassly.
After I recently updated from Sketchup Pro 2017 to Sketchup Pro 2019 (I did a clean uninstall and fresh install of SU Pro 2019) SU Pro 2019 is now giving me issues with my “pinned to taskbar” icons (SU, Layout & Style Builder), which my other installed software have never done (and SU Pro 2017 was not doing either).
I always allow my software to create Start Menu icons, and I don’t have any shortcuts on my desktop, and I prefer to pin the commonly used software pinned to my start menu, and then the most used (as in daily) pinned on the taskbar.
Sketchup Pro 2019 now creates a duplicate icon (of the already pinned to taskbar icon) on the taskbar when I launched it.
I’ve tried deleting and recreating the pinned icons, pinning them from various locations, even from the .exe file located in the Program Files directory, and the behaviour remains the same. I also found some articles online that mention various ways to pin taskbar icons that are doing similar behaviour, but none of these posted solutions have managed to sort this issue out.
I’ve resorted to not pinning these items and launching them from the start menu instead, as a temporary workaround. I still would like to achieve the same pinned to taskbar icons, as my other installed software, but currently, Sketchup Pro 2019 creates an additional (temporary) taskbar icon while it is running, which goes away when I close it down.
Can someone perhaps give some ideas on what could be the cause of this on version 2019, which was not happening on my previously installed 2017 version?
