    I have several items pinned to the Quick Launch bar and when I launch some of them, I get the program icon duplicated onto the taskbar. When I launch other items, I merely get the Quick Launch icon's background filled in.

    As an example, I have 2 editors pinned to the Quick Launch bar, Notepad++ and ATPad. Looking at the properties for both, I see that except for the "Target" textbox data, they are identical. However, when I click on the Notepad++ icon, it launches Notepad++ and adds a Notepad++ icon to the right, on the Taskbar. If I click on the ADPad, it launches it and does not add an icon to the taskbar.

    I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, SP1

    I've tried unpinning them, then re-pinning them, but that didn't help.

    I have 3 screenshots of the Quick Launch area and taskbar.

    The 1st screenshot is before I click on anything

    The 2nd screenshot is after I click on the Quick Launch ATPad icon (note that no new icon shows up in the taskbar area).

    The 3rd screenshot is after I click on the Quick Launch Notepad++ icon (note that a new Notepad++ icon appears in the taskbar area).
