    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.

    Does it leave a blank spot on the taskbar?

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

    Windows 10!

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

    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"
