    Hi,
    This seems to only affect icons that I put there. I am trying to get rid of the MS Edge and Store icons.
    These icons don't exist in $env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar\ and deleting the registry key has no affect as after a reboot they return.

    Does anyone know where these icons are coming from and how to stop them?

    Thanks

    W.

    Edit:
    I've found how to remove the store icon:
    HKCU:Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\ShowWindowsStoreAppsOnTaskbar

    DWORD 00000001 = enabled
    DWORD 00000002 = disabled


    Hello woter, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You should be able to just right click on the icon on the taskbar to "Unpin from taskbar".

    Hi Brink,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Is this based on your findings? I ask as I can unpin, but on a reboot they come back. (At least the Edge icon still does).

    No mandatory profiles or anything like that.

    I'm thinking MS have done something to try and force it to remain. There're a few Google hits on modifying it during OSD, i.e. burning the unpinned settings into the default user hive.

    Thanks again,

    W.

    So far I've been able to unpin Edge and Store and not have them automatically restored.

    I'm not sure why it would be restored for you.

    Woter,

    You might also see if this below may be related to your issue with the Store app.
