Apologies in advance if this has been answered before. My search didn't come up with results.

I have two Chrome instances that are always open in my second monitor. I would like to launch a new Chrome instance when I single click on the Chrome icon in my dock. I know that I can double click, but I'm not too fond of that.

I have unchecked the "Do not launch multiple sessions on the same application" setting and have also played around with the Tasklist Actions, but I have not been able to have it work as described above.

Any ideas would be highly appreciated.

Thank you.

Is the 'Combine dock icons with running applications' enabled? If not, you must click on the Chrome icon on the *left* side of the dock to launch a new session (assuming 'Do not launch multiple sessions...' is also disabled, as you say).

Otherwise, what exactly are your settings for the dock in terms of running applications so I can try to reproduce the issue here?

Hello Jorge.

Thanks for the fast reply.

'Combine dock icons with running applications' is indeed enabled.

My Running Applications settings are these: https://i.imgur.com/9nT2HsA.png

Don't hate it, I had completely forgotten about this thread, sorry. :(

Let's try something: place a shortcut to Notepad on the dock. Now click on it to open Notepad. With Notepad open, click on the shortcut in the dock again. What happens? Do you get a second Notepad session?

No problem Jorge!

I did what you asked. Just like Chrome, first Notepad launches, second one doesn't.

If I double click, a second Notepad launches.

Ok, gotcha thanks, managed to reproduce it here with your settings.

I'll get back to you soon.
