    Task View and Icon next to it disappears

    I have Show Task View Button enabled. I pinned a File Explorer and a Google Chrome icon to the taskbar. In the taskbar reading left to right is the Task View Button then next to that is the File Explorer icon then the Chrome icon next to that.

    It seems at random the Task View Button will disappear and with it whatever icon that is directly adjacent to it.. in this case, my File Explorer icon. I have to hide then reshow the Task View Button in order for my icons to show up properly.

    - I'd like to be able to see the icons on the task bar all the time without the Task Bar button being shown at all but Windows won't allow me to do that. If the Task View Button is Not shown, sometimes ( I don't know why) Only the Chrome icon shows and still not the file Explorer icon ( but this only sometimes... seems like that space next to the Task View Button is linked it the Task View Button in strange ways. If I have to re-enable or hide the Task View Button sometimes both icons stay for a while and sometimes not.

    I also cannot seem to move my taskbar icons to the right side of the taskbar away from the Task View Button ( i wanna put them next to the notifications icon. . How do i do that?

Edge and Task View
It seems that if you have Edge open on one desktop, and then try to open a separate instance on a separate task view desktop, then OS just pops you back to the Desktop where Edge is already running rather than opening up a new instance of Edge. ...
