How do I make programs open directly on the icon in the taskbar?

Good day every1,
I have given up several replaceable programs because of this problem...

as already stated in the title:
I want my programs to open ON the icon in the taskbar... for some programs it works, for others strangely it doesn't...

Meaning I click on the icon, and instead of opening itself where the icon is located it opens a new window right next to it....

as you can see sony vegas opened normally ON the icon of it, but Pale Moon opened next to it, this is VERY annoying-.-

Welcome to the Seven Forums
Try this, after it opens the one next to it right click on it and pin it to the taskbar then unpin the 1st one.
