    How to Hide the Stupid Search Button on the Windows 10 Taskbar

    I tried it, and it seems to work.
    As to why ms would do something so moronic without leaving us an 'out'... your guess is as good as mine.

    Is there a way to restore it?
    I think it's tied to the upcoming Microsoft 'Cortana' thing.

    I'm going to leave it for now, though it's worth reporting on the Feedback app that those 2 icons are unmovable/undeletable.

    I dunno. I haven't even rebooted to see if it has to be hid each time.... gonna do that now...

    I won't be using cortana, so it don't matter to me.

    Ok, a bit of a flaw. Has to be run each time. Adding it to startup returns the following error:

    "Your system administrator has blocked this program. For more info, contact your system administrator"
