Windows 10: Duplicate office 2016 icons in taskbar Solved

    Duplicate office 2016 icons in taskbar


    When I pin Office 2016 to my taskbar, then click on it opens a new icon on the taskbar instead of using the one already there.

    Also, not sure if this is related. But when I right click on this new icon and go to the "tasks" menu with the "New email message, new appointment, etc" links none of them work. Nothing happens when I click them.

    Tried repairing and reinstalling 2016 with no luck.

    Try unpinning the first icon. Then open outlook and re-pin the icon that shows.

    As soon as I pin that Icon it creates another duplicate. Weird.

    Edit: Nevermind, this is resolved. I was on a preview build and just upgraded to final retail version. Issue is fixed.

    Not sure if the following will fix the duplicate icon (I uninstalled/reinstalled to correct that issue), but this fixed the tasks on right click issue (works for Outlook 2016):
