4.01 Beta 4: Wrong Icons Fix, but still problems with chrome apps

Great thing, that fix, thank you! All the Google Cohrme Apps used to have the Chrome icon on the DF Taskbars and now it's working - 90%...

On native Taskbar /Win 7); the Icon of the link is used, on DF taskbar, the icon of the window - that makes a difference e.g. for Google Docs/Drive.

No problem! Could you post a screenshot of the Chrome button discrepancies on the Windows taskbar and the DF taskbar? For me they show the same icons, but perhaps I've got mine set up differently.

Thanks!

Interesting! Was that shortcut on the desktop and pinned to the taskbar before Google Docs was integrated with Google Drive? If I go to docs.google.com, and pin it as a shortcut on the taskbar, I get the Google Docs icon on both the Windows and DisplayFusion taskbar. If I go to drive.google.com and pin that instead, I get the Google Drive icon on both taskbars.

Yes, that's true, it is an old shortcut.
But I checked it: It is the same for every windows shortcut that has an icon different from that of the window opened by it: The Win7 taskbar uses the icon from the shortcut, the DF taskbar the icon from the window.
(By the way: How did you do the docs/drive icon testing? When I go to docs.google.com, it redirects me to drive.google.com immediately, I cannot make a new "docs" shortcut. But that's not the important thing...)

Ah right! Ok, so we've looked into this, and unfortunately it's not something we can fix at the moment. There's no way for us to detect whether or not the application was launched from a shortcut that has a different icon

If we're able to fix it up in the future though, we definitely will.

Please let me know if you have any other questions at all.

Thanks!

No problem - I actually would prefer Win7 to show the window's actual icon like DF does
