IE10 icon on taskbar display

    IE10 icon on taskbar display


    Here's something weird and wonderful. I presently have 6 tabs open in ie10. I have Facebook opened in the first tab but hovering the mouse over the ie10 icon on the taskbar displays the order of the tabs incorrectly. For instance, Facebook will show up as # 2 but when I click on either one of the tabs from the icon on the taskbar, Facebook will actually be first in line.

    Anyone else getting this & is this a bug or is there something I can to fix that.

    Hello Gloosecap,

    Odd, could you post a screenshot showing this to see if may reveal anything?

    Does it sort itself out after closing and reopening IE10?

    If not, then you might see if resetting IE10 completely may help.

    Brink, this snag has disappeared. I did reboot the machine last evening (usually leave it on sleep) and just now as I checked it, I notice all the tabs are in proper order when I hover the mouse over the ie10 icon.
    If this comes back again, I'll send you a screenshot and ask for your help. Thanks for replying!!! :-)
