    Remove Taskview button and more from Taskbar right click menu


    In TH2 it was possible to remove that button with a reg entry which stopped working in RS1 but it's possible to do by modifying a file and below is how it can be done and can also remove "Show Windows Ink Workspace" and "Show touch keyboard button". Make sure to take a system image or create a restore point before proceeding

    Copy explorer.exe.mui from C:\Windows\en-US
    Open with ResHacker and expand the Menu tree. In item # 205 remove
    MENUITEM "Show Task &View button", 430, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED
    MENUITEM "Show Windows Ink &Workspace button", 437, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED
    MENUITEM "Show touch ke&yboard button", 436, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED
    Then recompile the file
    Move to item # 206 and remove
    MENUITEM "Show Windows Ink &Workspace button", 437, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED
    MENUITEM "Show &touch keyboard button", 436, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED
    and recompile again then save the file somewhere safe
    Go back to C:\Windows\en-US\explorer.exe.mui take ownership of explorer.exe.mui and rename it to explorer.exe.mui.old paste the modded file and restart the computer. So far no adverse effects at all

    Also realized one can remove other unused entries such as Search if you happen to use some other software for that function but choose your own path
    Click image for larger version.
