Windows 10: Edit taskbar Solved

    Edit taskbar

    I have been looking around and cannot seem to grasp this one......

    I know that in all previous versions if I wanted to get rid of something on the taskbar I could simply right click and delete.

    I cannot seem to do that with this version.

    Is there a way that I can edit the taskbar and get rid of all of the crap that they put on there such as camera, calendar etc?

    Hello Jim, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It depends on if you are talking about items on the taskbar notification area (small icons by clock), or for apps pinned to the taskbar.

    'Pin to taskbar' and 'Unpin from taskbar' Apps in Windows 10

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot with these items pointed out to be sure.

    I pulled this up, right clicked camera and this is whaty I got.

    I don't need camera (at all) and just wanted to get rid of it. Any suggestions greatly appreciated! :)

    I will look at everything you sent now and see if any of it helps.

    Thanks for reading!

    That is not called taskbar.
    It's the All apps list.

    Brink has a tutorial you can use to select items to delete.

    Use Option Two.
