Windows 10: How to get rid of the line under the taskbar icons ?
Flight Team Leader
It's simply a small visual indication you have something(s) running. Would you rather not know what apps/progs/whatever you opened? I prefer to drive without a blindfold on. IMHO.
Well ..I like this better ..:
Only if you have stuff pinned to the taskbar. Otherwise, you already know what's running by virtue of it simply being there.
Also, people who want to "discuss" the fact that they like the underline should start their own thread, not hijack a thread where the question is how to disable it.
Sorry.. but this is a two way street when it come to any discussion. I can fully understand that the OP would like to remove that feature but as far as I know there will be no way to do that, now or in the future. Well, unless MS removes it from the OS.
Sorry to say, but you don't know much then. We've been able to completely customize what the taskbar looks like in all Windows versions since XP, so removing some underlines is nothing, and we're sure to see some apps or skins that can do it come out very soon. In fact, you can already get the "classic" taskbar back, which doesn't have those underlines.

Nice.. take the statement I made and just use the part you want to use. If you took the time to use the entire statement I said that MS would not change the feature.. not that there would not be any third party product that would be able to change the task bar.
but as far as I know there will be no way to do that, now or in the future. Well, unless MS removes it from the OS.
Well you can't now so don't hang yourself for something so insignificant. Seriously?
We never had or needed the lines before. Just color the entire icon like was done before to indicate that the program is active.

Had to look twice at the thread title.
Its I, I, I, me , me , me,... nit picking freaks who cannot appreciate that the majority find the underlining a positive indication.
I have a high resolution screen, so the taskbar seems disproportionately small by default/ In prior versions of Windows I would just increase the taskbar height and icons would adjust in size accordingly, but not so with Windows 10. How can I resize...
I am using Windows 10240 and I have the latest iTunes 12.2.1 installed. I have it pinned to my taskbar but when I open it it creates a second icon for iTunes on the taskbar. I have tried unpinning and repinning both icons several times but that...
Does anyone know how to customise the behaviour of icons so they always show in the taskbar?
Remove Search Icon from Windows 10 Taskbar:
1. Type regedit in RUN or Start search box and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.
2. Now go to following key:
I get that they feel the need to put new stuff in... but this just annoys the crap right outta me. I'm opening programs, and no freakin icon is appearing in my task bar.
Please oh please tell me there's a way to eliminate this latest...
