Using Edge stable 79.0.309.65 on Windows 10 1809 and 1909.

Pinning Edge to the task bar via start menu (More -> Pin to taskbar) does not seem to work correctly. The resulting task bar icon does not activate when launching Edge. Instead a new task bar icon is created, causing Edge to appear twice on the task bar.

 

We'd like to add Edge to the task bar via Import-StartMenuLayout, we can't do that if it keeps working this way.

Seems the same problem. I'm facing the same issue with W10 1909 and Edge 80 (Stable)
