Description Yan Pas 2015-02-08 17:14:42 UTC
Master of new Bases, Help window is grouped with currently opened windows. For instance I open Calc window, than open LO base. There are no Base icon on the taskbar and I'm unable to click on Calc window. The same with help, in 4.3 there was separate white icon on the task bar for help component, now it is tied to some of opened windows. This happens if I have pinned LO icons on the taskbar.
If I have no pinned icons - I'm unable to run Writer (for example) if I run LO Base (Database master window)

A little abstract, could you attach a few screen clips with annotation. Great if you can do so from both prior builds and the current situation.

The clips really will help to identify the issue.

This is the video, hope the bug is clarified now. 
Problems: Base Master is on top, Base master has Writer icon, Help has Writer icon too. Unpinning doesn't help

On windows 10 Pro 64-bit, en-US with
Version: (x64)
Build ID: 81898c9f5c0d43f3473ba111d7b351050be20261
Locale: en-US (en_US)

I can not confirm any of these reported issues with the (Windows 7 +) Jump lists or Taskbar handling. Each LO component is docking its own instance on the taskbar.  Writer, Impress, Base, Calc, even Help when opened. Each entry on the taskbar shows its Jump list of Windows registered recent documents.  Each can be pinned to task bar, although there is no launcher tied directly to Help--so once closed can not reopen directly to built-in help.

On Windows 10, Start menu Jump lists have to be activated manually (with creation of a “EnableXamlJumpView” registry dWord in the Explorer\Advanced key) but LO launchers pined to Windows 10 Start Menu also display recents as recorded by Windows.

So, comfortable saying that everything laid down for work resolving bug 35785 continues to function correctly.

Please test again, or simply close invalid.

The compomemt which doesn't dock it's instance to taskbar is Libreoffice Base creation master.
Open Writer
Open LO base
-> You cannot switch to Writer until you close windows of creating new databases.

The same is true for these wizards: Presentation, Document converter, Euro converter, Address data source.
Yet, 3.5.0 already behaved the same way.
