Bug Description

When I minimize Files after navigating to a location on a mounted (non-root) filesystem, I can't restore it by clicking its icon on the Launcher. Instead, a new Files window comes up. I can still access all the windows through Alt + Tab.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Files
2. Navigate to a mounted filesystem (a pendrive, for example)
3. Minimize Files
4. Click Files icon on the Launcher

What should happen:
Files window should get restored

What happens:
A new Files window comes up, the other is still open, but inaccessible through Launcher

I've recorder a video showing the bug:
