Combining taskbar icons not working on Windows 11

Copper Contributor

I am running Windows 11 Home. In the "Settings -> Personalization -> Combine taskbar buttons and hide labels" is set to "Always" but it isn't combining. For example, I expect to see only 1 Chrome icon but instead, see several, one for each session. I connected with a live chat with a Microsoft technician and he wasn't able to resolve this issue. He tried "sfc /scannow" & "DISM /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth" and this didn't help. He suggested that I try the Windows Insider Program.
