    This is the easiest way to get rid of the icon. You can right-click on the date/time in Taskbar system tray and select "Customize notification icons" option. It'll open a new window. Now look for GWX (Get Windows 10) entry in the list and change its value to "Hide icon and notifications" using the drop-down box.

  3. Taskbar in Windows 10 Pro

    I had "mail" on my taskbar, but it wasn't working well for me, so I right clicked on the mail icon and chose "unpin from taskbar". The icon is no longer there but the space remains. When I right-click on the space I get "Mail, pin to taskbar, close all
    windows". How do I get rid of this space on my taskbar it is taking space I need.
