Windows 10: Help me please with removing icons. Solved

  1.    12 May 2016 #1

    Help me please with removing icons.

    Are there any regedit settings or a Windows 10 taskbar tweaker like that of Windows 7 that can perform the following as I have searched in vain and found nothing so far.
    Simply, I would like to remove permanently (not disable) from the far right of the taskbar the "show hidden icons arrow" and the "peek at desktop" bar so that there is nothing at all on my taskbar except for the Windows 10 start button on the far left. Auto-hiding the taskbar is not ​what I'm looking for. Please reply only if you have done this or know of a workaround as I asked sometime ago and got nowhere!

    I don't think that you will ever be able to eliminate the Cortana icon or the Edge icon.

    Rocky - I think you misunderstood my question. I just want a blank taskbar with the Windows 10 start button on the bottom left - I didn't ask about Cortana or Edge, sorry!

    Right click taskbar, Cortana > Hidden. Edge, right click > unpin from taskbar. ???

    To the OP, what you want to do will not be easy, if even possible. And there aren't to many people wanting to actually do it. I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for a solution. It's not a sought after feature.

    Click on Settings and then go to System. Notifications & actions. Turn system icons on or off. I think this is what you are looking for.

    P.S.: You can disable "Peek At The Desktop" but you can't eliminate the little bar.
