We are having an issue where Chrome Icon randomly appears twice on taskbar at logon\new session. The 2nd icon will disappear when Chrome is launched. I can see the the Google Chrome (2).lnk is created in AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar. ImplicitAppShortcuts is empty. 

Chrome 78.0.3904.70 Enterprise is installed

This is on Windows 10 1809 and setting startmenu\taskbar via layout xml:
Example of what is in XML
 <start:DesktopApplicationTile Size="2x2" Column="0" Row="2" DesktopApplicationID="Chrome" />

<taskbar:DesktopApp DesktopApplicationLinkPath="%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Google Chrome.lnk" />

I have attempted to use a master preferences file to disable shortcut creation but that has not worked. New profiles do not see the addition shortcut until 2nd or 3rd log on. In some cases I have had to log in 3-4 time before the duplicate returned (again until Chrome is opened).

Is there any way you could make a screencast of this behavior?
