    Remove Search and Task View Icons from Taskbar ?


    Is there a way to remove those two items ?

    They cover up icons I pin to the taskbar

    I haven't seen a posted hack to do it. But maybe you should change you taskbar options to "Taskbar Buttons - never combine", then they will not hide each other.

    I think there's a way, but MS won't approve. They stick them there so you can test them in upcoming revisions :)

    Thanks for the tip, but I never combine icons. As you can see from my earlier pic, those 2 items are covering my open Chrome page. I will give Rickkins link a peek.

    Much nicer, but to bad it doesn`t stick

    Did you create a shortcut of the .exe file and put it in your Startup folder?

    No, will that make it stick ? Or will I just have to click the file on each bootup ?

    The WinTHButtonHider application works okay, just one small glitch; I have to click on the 2nd taskbar to make the placeholders disappear.

    It should work, with the possible exception in my previous post.
