Persistent icon pinned in the taskbar

Epic keeps pinning an icon to my taskbar.  I keep un-pinning it, but it keeps coming back.  Is there some way to defeat this?

My suggestion would be to remove this feature, and only do this on installation.

Re: Persistent icon pinned in the taskbar

Hi Pat!

So sorry about that.  It's a bug.  Chromium's default behavior is to do that on installation...we suspect something we're deleting on close of Epic is triggering Epic to think it's just been installed.

Nothing in chromium is easy to resolve but we hope to fix this in the next 72 hours.

Thanks for your patience, support & reporting this bug!!

Re: Persistent icon pinned in the taskbar

With the update of version, the dreaded random pinning of the browser icon in the task bar has returned.
Can't someone please find this bug and please - please make sure that it never returns again. I have moved back to using version and have disabled auto-updating, until this horrible bug is finally vanquished in the source!

Re: Persistent icon pinned in the taskbar

Please uninstall Epic (at the bottom of wrench menu) and delete Epic Folder (%APPDATA%/Local/), do a fresh download the latest Epic from and install it.
That is a bug in the omaha installer, we have fixed it in new downloads, we are also working on updating the updater on already downloaded versions (which is likely to take sometime)
