    When left clicked icons in taskbar do not minimize


    It used to be that when you had a window open you could minimize it by clicking it corresponding icon in the task bar. that feature appears to no longer work and you must open each window individually and go to the minimize icon in that window to minimize it. or you can hover and have it show the preview and then right click the preview to minimize it. Has anyone else had this issue? If so how did you resolve it? I always remember windows being quickly minimized by clicking its icon in the taskbar.

    More information, I do not have multiple instances of the same program running like multiple chrome browser windows or multiple spreadsheets. It is just 1 instance of the program open. This has always worked before. i don;t think i did anything to change that behavior.

    Just updated to 1703 about 30 minutes ago and the problem went away. Thank you for the response though. I'll mark this solved tomorrow.
