    How to remove icons from taskbar?


    I have some unused icons pinned to the task bar that I'd like to remove. Right-clicking on any of them does not work. Is there any trick to remove them?
    Thanks,
    Ed

    You can try some of Brink's tutorials, or first check the folder:
    and perhaps post a picture, so we can see where and what is the problem.
    %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar"

    This path above is from tutorial. I checked mine and it is like:
    C:\Users\myname\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned

    OK, I found that task bar folder and unpinned the unused icons from the task bar.
    Thanks a lot.
