Description of the issue:
Unable to open a New window nor New private window from the taskbar

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Right click on the Brave icon in the task bar
  2. The Tasks Menu pops up with choice of opening a new window or a new private window
  3. Error message will pop up that reads: "The item you selected is unavailable. It might have been moved, renamed, or removed. Do you want to remove it from the list?
  4. You have one button, Cancel

Expected result:
A new browser window or a new private window should open

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.28.105 Chromium: 92.0.4515.131 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
I am able to click on the Brave icon from the drop down menu and it works, but not the other two.

This problem started back in January of this year after I updated my computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10, all updates have been updated but the problem persists.
Even your brave ads don’t show up like they used to.

Thank you,
