My laptop is normally docked and I have two external monitors connected to it.
When I un-dock my laptop ( to go to a meeting ) my dual-monitor taskbar disables since there is now only one monitor ( my laptop ).

Now all the tasks (programs) that were coupled to the second monitor does NOT appear on the one remaining task-bar.

It seems to me that the Dual-Monitor task-bar is not "releasing" the tasks for the remaining task-bar to pick up.

Also - when I now put the laptop back into the docking station the Dual-Monitor task-bar does not pick-up the "lost" tasks.

The way I find them back is through the Alt-tab button.

Can this be fixed ?

    i am having the same issue. I have only 1 external monitor.
    sometimes, Alt-Tab also does not bring the window to the laptop monitor.
    i end up using task manager, bring to front option.
