    Thx Eagle
    I went in rush through the tutorial in the link that you have pointed to
    I am looking to remove those icons from the task bar not hide them as they are hidden already (except network icon and audio) as per the snapshot below :

    My bad, you meant those specific ones...
    Couple of those run at startup (Windows Defender & OneDrive). I don't think you can just remove the tray icon, you have to stop them from running at startup ... Check Task Manager > Start Up > Right Click on each and disable
    Ccleaner - check it's options, I believe has an option to turn it's tray icon on/off
    Intel Graphics - check it's options, it has an option to turn it's tray icon on/off

    Go to Settings/Personalization/Taskbar/Notifications area/Select which icons appear on the taskbar

    For Avast you can't do much since it must run at startup.
    The USB safely remove hardware icon you just need to unplug the USB device.
