Hello Sunshine1921,

Since it does show an icon on your taskbar for them, does is show a taskbar thumbnail preview of their opened window when you hover the pointer on the icon on the taskbar?

If they do, then they may just be offscreen, and the tutorial below can show you how to drag them back onscreen.

hi brink, thank you soooo soooo much! Yes, it does show a thumbnail preview. I didn't know it could go off screen. I must have pressed or accidentally dragged it that made it go off screen. I just follow the tutorial link and I did work! I didn't know such a solution. Thank you once again and have a nice day!

Pinned Taskbar item open new icon instead of on top of pinned item?
I've got two laptops here. Both running Windows 7. On one when you pin an item to the taskbar and run that program it does not open another icon on the taskbar. On this one it will open a new icon on the taskbar. Why is this the case and how do I fix it please?
