    im not the only one who was trying to do this

    How do I change the System Tray Upward Arrow icon in windows 10 v1709

    - - - Updated - - -

    hello @Jacee the article you shared is a kind of maintaining the system tray itself via traditional tools , where I can choose what to be shown in sysTray. but what Im looking for is the location of this /\ picture in system folders so I could replace it or delete . it is about the graphical icon now

    - - - Updated - - -

    so the question is where this arrow initial ICON can be found in the system ? maybe system32 or any other folder.
    not the system tray area, but the picture itself, as an .ico probably.

    I would at least create a System Restore point, or do a disk image backup first beforehand.

    chevronUp is not an icon, it's an .SVG file...vector graphics.

    It's part of several Windows themes, so it's pretty tightly coupled.

    I'm not sure why it's such an issue for you, but you'll need to look for a theme that displays something other than chevronUp.

    Windows 7 had its own themes, so Open Shell (formerly Classic Shell) can make Windows 10 look like Windows 7.

    GitHub - Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu: Reborn of Classic Shell.

    I would not attempt to remove it entirely.

    It's there for a reason...so you can access overflow icons for programs and functions...like if you want to safely remove an external USB drive.
