Chrome, for the life of me won't minimize into the launcher. Every time I minimize it it goes away never to be seen again. This is a pain to have to deal with.
How can I fix it?
I was using the latest dev edition of Chrome.

I'm having the same problem, and I'm not familiar with how the Unity Launcher works exactly, but I know I used to have this same problem in Windows 7. It stemmed from the application (chrome) not supporting the launcher properly - not the other way around - due to its tendency to have several processes running at once. There should be a workaround on one side of the fence (either with the launcher or chrome itself?)
It's also noteworthy that I've been testing all sorts of programs on the launcher, and as of yet, Chrome is the only one that does this.
In my case, the restored window, and newly created windows, were opening off to the right of my visible display. This persisted through a logoff.
click on the Chrome icon in the task bar, alt-f7 left arrow until the window appears on screen.
