[DISCLAIMER] This is not actually a fix, more of a hack to make this work since it annoyed the hell out of me. First of all, you need to find out what the AppID of the app (here IntelliJ) is. To do this, you can use Taskbar Tweaker (you can uninstall it afterwards). Open the program and go to Taskbar Inspector. The string next to the arrow is the AppID. ...
