Did you click on "Restore Default Icon Behaviors" in the panel you show?

Ali, If Kat's suggestion doesn't solve the issue, check the same dialog but a different area
I recall an issue with the options for Taskbar buttons: - it had to do with dual monitors, but might also apply to your case.

Try
Taskbar buttons: "Always combine, hide labels"
