Windows Store apps - pinning to DF taskbar then running creates separate icon

Hi again,
I've been trying to pin some apps from the Windows Store to a DF taskbar (I use them in Nvidia Surround, but in regular mode I use the Windows implementation). Problem is, when I attempt to open these apps, they create a new icon on the DF taskbar, instead of connecting to the pinned item. If I remove the pinned icon, then attempt to pin from the application item, it generates a new item. So basically, when I have one of these apps open, I have duplicate icons in the DF taskbar.

This does not occur with desktop apps packaged and distributed through the Windows store (eg. Spotify), only with UWP apps (eg. Mail, Xbox, and even the Windows Store itself). These apps do have the setting in the pin options as being Metro apps.

Windows 10 1703, all latest updates. DF 9.0 Beta 3.

Just as an update, I noticed in the latest beta changelog the following line:

Unfortunately, there seems to be no visible change in this regard. Still getting separate icons for UWP apps. Windows Store apps which are desktop apps still work fine.

This issue is still open on our list. The issue we fixed was with some Windows Store app icons not showing up at all on the taskbar buttons. We'll be sure to post an update here when we've got this issue all fixed up

Thanks!

Hello.
Am I right, that this issue is already opened?
I have the described problem in my version, too.

Hi Manuel,

Yup we do have this issue opened on our list still, but unfortunately we haven't made much progress on it.

Sorry!
