    Unable to un-pin Cortana from Taskbar?


    I'm a minimalist, preferring not to clutter up my screen with all kinds of icons, etc.

    I used to have Cortana hidden off screen, but still able to respond to me if I said; "Hey, Cortana."
    Now, recently, the icon has popped up on my taskbar, and when I go to change it, hide it, etc. I only get the options of "Show App Icons" "Show All Notification Icons" and "Show Touch Keyboard Button"


    Uhm.... What?

    I want to use Cortana, but cut down on all of the icons on my desktop screen. I don't think it was this way before the recent W10 update.

    I could use some help.

    I think you're in 'Tablet Mode',
    if you switch to Desktop Mode, your taskbar right click options should give you the ability to 'hide' Cortana.

    Hmm . Has something changed?

    I have Cortana hidden in desktop mode, but it is now always visible in tablet mode.

    I do not recollect that being the case before, but maybe I just never noticed until I saw this thread?

    This is all I can reduce it to in Tablet Mode:

    Thanks! I've been looking for that.
