    Can you remove the text next to the icon's on the taskbar?


    The interest here is use as little space as necessary when you want multiple icons on the task bar. Can the text be edited to either remove/hide it? i.e. can IHeartRadio be shortened to iHR or just not show any text? Right now using FF the text to the right of the icon is "Installation and Setup" way to long. If I felt the need, I would just rather rely on "Task View" to see whats running?

    Yes, Taskbar Settings/Taskbar Buttons - Always Combine;Hide Labels.

    Also: Use Small Icons

    Tx Edwin, that works perfectly. Must have over looked it: Combine taskbar buttons "Always, hide labels"

    Well typical f...ing stupid MS, I hate combined icons. Why not make the hide labels a separate option? No no, they are too busy trying to fix Edge.

    I am using Edge, there are many inconveniences. I agree with you, they do not have time for an edit. I am satisfied with Goolge Chorme
