Taskbar Phantom Window when using multiple monitors

I'm using Windows 11.  I've used Adobe Acrobat Pro for many years but recently upgraded to Windows 11 and am wondering if my issue is related. Using multiple monitors (extended view) when I open a pdf file on one monitor there is one icon in the taskbar showing my open file name as expected. If I MOVE this pdf document to one of my other monitors the taskbar DUPLICATES and shows two open files with the same name even though I only have ONE document open.  If I move it to the third monitor sometimes it shows in triplicate.  This is visually distracting and uses up my taskbar space.  If I open a second document it is very difficult to tell which file to toggle back to as the "phantom" files don't react if I click on them.
