    Taskbar icon management in Settings


    I am using Windows 10 and have run into a situation that I’d like a little advice on. I navigate to Settings > System > Notifications & Actions.
    I am presented with a screen that has an option “Select which icons appear on the taskbar”.
    I am presented with a list of programs and a switch that allows me to run on / off whether or not the icon displays on the taskbar.
    The issue (minor annoyance really) is I have choices for programs that a) I have removed or b) portable apps that did not need to be installed to run.
    I would like to remove these programs from this list as they are no longer present.
    The MS community site really has provided no assistance. I have attached a screenshot.

    Any clues?

    Hello share666m, :)

    Resetting the notification area icons usually helps with this.
