I have Edge beta pinned to my taskbar. The taskbar settings are set to "Combine taskbar buttons" = "Always, hide labels" (the setting is also set the same way further below under the "Multiple displays" settings). Of all the pinned apps, including Chrome, only Edge does not respect this setting and adds a new icon to the taskbar in addition to the pinned one. Sounds trivial, but I have a lot of taskbar buttons, and I like to save space.

More on this. It doesn't happen on Windows 10, only on Windows Server 2016. Interesting.

@HotCakeX  Good catch! That fixed it. I will have to let our IT guys know there is a different download for the server version.
