Description of the issue: (Win 10) icon in the taskbar appears twice
Steps to Reproduce:
- Create a new user profile in Brave
- Add Brave to taskbar
- Open Brave from the taskbar
Expected result: The Brave icon should only be “opened once” instead of twice.
Reproduces how often: Always
Operating System and Brave Version:
Windows 10 1903 - Brave: 0.66.99
The “bug” occurred with one of the last updates.
Normally you click on the icon, and Brave opens “only once” instead of displaying a new icon with the user photo.
Here the mistake happens that one clicks several times on the left icon, which opens several Brave windows.
I hope you understand what I mean ^^
Edit: That’s what it looks like when I open Thunderbird:
sorry am confused couldn’t follow the instructions to recreate the problem
found an bug am not sure if this what you are talking about . Followed your instructions but then closed the first user, when I clicked on original brave icon for the first users on the taskbar it opened the second user profile brave
Normally Brave, like all other programs, should be opened with a blue bar under the first and only Brave icon (see Thunderbird) - not with a 2nd icon in the task bar.
That is normal for creating additional user. It creates a shortcut for the new user
But since I can’t edit the default user “Profile 1”, I have to make a new one (actually only because of the profile picture ).
I still don’t like the current state, however, if I want to switch to the desktop with ALT + Tab and quickly open Brave, I often open a new (half) Brave window.
Often I notice this too late, have several pages open, but then I always have to switch between both windows to get to the open sides of the other window.
Another solution I use is Copy & Past to copy the tabs from one window to the other and close the first.
And this process can happen to me with any desktop switch!
Result: Not so bulging
