    Every time I wake up to a Windows update, something goes nuts with my computer. Always have issues with the Chrome startup tabs. I use 4 and doubles show up after the update, then triples the next time I click & so on.

    I do the startup procedure in settings with no luck. Googled it and a lot of people have the same frustration. Ended up doing a reset and then setting up the tabs I want on startup.

    Anyway, now, my Gmail is one of the startup tabs and I can't pin it to the taskbar or desktop. When I click the G mail icon, all I get is a new page tab. If I right click on the gmail tab and select pin, it pins it to the far left of the tabs.

    My wife thinks this is a security thing, but I'm not sure.

    I suppose I can live with having my gmail on the start up tabs, but would like to pin them to taskbar & desktop

    Any help appreciated

    You need to tell us more about your system, i.e., Windows version , RAM, and disk space?

    Also the steps you take to do these "startup procedure in settings" and method of adding to the taskbar and desktop?

    I am NOT a Chrome user.

    I'm running Windows 7 and have 392 GB of free disc space. Not sure about RAM, how do I find that out?

    Thanks
