I installed Atom in Windows 8.1 using Chocolatey:
When I search for Atom on the computer I find ‘Atom’ with an icon that says ‘Shim’. If I pin that to the taskbar, again I see the Shim icon - not the Atom icon. Clicking the icon starts a normal Atom session and adds an Atom icon to the taskbar for the duration of the session.
In Windows 7 I only see the Atom icon.
Is it correct to see the Shim icon in Windows 8.1?
