So, I've posted this on the Chrome forum and I haven't had any replies in over a week. I just thought I'd try here just in case somebody knows what's going on and how to fix it.
Basically, the Chrome shortcut pinned to the Start screen (Metro) opens a new instance of Chrome even if there's already an instance running. It used to go to the open instance; it just started doing this a couple of weeks ago. I have un-pinned and re-pinned, uninstalled/reinstalled, tested it with Firefox to see if it's just Chrome. It also happens when I pin the shortcut to the taskbar, but if I open an instance and pin that instance to the taskbar, then I can close it and it will function as a shortcut that opens a new instance or goes to the running instance.
I don't know if any of that mess makes sense, but if it does and you know how I can fix this, I would be incredibly grateful for advice. This is really driving me nuts. If I have time later, I'll try to post a screen capture to clarify what I'm trying to describe.
**EDIT** Here's a screen capture to try to show you what I mean: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B597ZFKg82RdM1ZkQkFrZnZOVkU/edit?usp=drivesdk
