    Turn off location icon


    Howdy,

    Thanks to Brink for his good tutorial on how to disable location service here:
    Location Service - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Settings > Home > Taskbar > Turn system icons on or off > Location is ON.
    I also want to turn it off via registry only.
    Any idea on which key will do it?
    Thank for help

    Didn't Brink cover the registry keys in option 4?

    I saw that, too. Not sure if the OP wants to turn off the Service via registry, or just the systray icon.

    Sorry but I posted the Bink's tutorial link myself, how could I didn't see the option 4 ?!
    Option 4 only turns off the service from registry! Not system tray icon!
    I want to turn Location system icon OFF!!!
    Thanks

    Maybe I'm not reading this right, but if you kill the service, there won't be any tray icon to display. No service, no trigger to display = no icon. Am I missing something?

    Yes, I already disabled service, but as you can see in the screen shot, the button is ON.
    This button is connected to a registry key, I wanna that key
    Thanks again...

    I'm assuming you can't turn that icon off from the settings app, is that correct?

    Yes I lost my hands in an accident and cant turn it off via settings
    So I collect all my customizations in a single .reg file and with each win clean install i apply my settings with a single reg file run!
    I'll ask it somewhere else, thanks for your helpful answers
