Get rid of double Chrome icons in taskbar ?

  crespo 17:55 13 Jul 2018

After recent update there are now 2 Google Chrome icons in my taskbar. The new icon is also larger and has another icon inside it as well. How do i get rid of this other Chrome icon as it makes the taskbar look intidy and i'd just rather have the one original Chrome icon. I'm using Windows 8.1 by the way.

What's the icon inside? To find out. Click on it.

It may be something else. If you still don't want it, it's only a shortcut. Delete it

If you mean icons that appear on the right side of task bar next to your clock do this , right click on task bar and then click on taskbar settings , on the notification tab click select icons and just scroll through the list to delete what you don't want.

note windows does what you described from time to time , I once installed new anti virus and ended up with 2 Kaspersky icons and 3 live update icons.

hi fruitbat …. you are right as well as me , that's why I asked if he meant the ones near the clock , your answer works on icons you put there yourself but as you see he did not specify which ones.
