    One of the new 'features' that is included with Windows 10 Technical Preview are the multi-tasking (virtual desktop) and search buttons that are in the taskbar. In the current release of Windows 10, these buttons are permanently in the bar and cannot be removed.

    Thankfully, in upcoming builds, you will be able to remove these items if you have no use for them. Thanks to screenshots from build 9879, you can see in the image at the top of this post that shows how you can remove these two buttons.

    Must be the finished version of the tweaks shared earlier this week by MSC.
    Nice to see, (or not see!)

    Also goes to show that Microsoft does seem to be listening to feedback...

    To remove Search icon:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search]
    "EnableProactive"=dword:00000000

    To remove TaskView icon:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MultitaskingView\AllUpView]
    "Enabled"=dword:00000000

    To get them back:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search]
    "EnableProactive"=-

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MultitaskingView\AllUpView]
    "Enabled"=-

    Just tried and they work.

    I would like removing both Search and Task View with out doing and registry tricks.
    It's nice to hear that option will be in the finished version.

    I would like a way to change the time it takes when hovering over a icon on the Taskbar to display the name.
    Without a registry trick.
