Can't right click for Chrome incognito mode any more

I've got Chrome pinned to my taskbar. Used to be able to right click the icon there and choose the normal window or incognito mode. Now when I right click all I get is the normal option. The keyboard shortcut works and so does the Chrome menu. I've tried uninstalling Chrome and reinstalling, same with the beta. This just started happening today, what gives?

Thanks guys but I probably didn't explain my problem well enough. Here's the little window that pops up when I right click:

I'm guessing Google simply decided to remove the incognito option because it used to be there. As you see, what's there now is an option to only open a regular window. Like I said, I can still open incognito windows but I prefer the ultra lazy way with the right-click.

This is what I hate about cloud-based stuff, you are totally at the cloud's mercy.
