    How do I remove unwanted icons from tablet mode taskbar?

    Hello Jim,

    To remove these icons from your taskbar, right-click the taskbar and uncheck
    Show Task View button
    . For Cortana, right-click the taskbar, select
    Cortana > Hidden. Right-click the left arrow and click
    Unpin from taskbar.

    Keep us posted.

    I haven't seen a posted hack to do it. But maybe you should change you taskbar options to "Taskbar Buttons - never combine", then they will not hide each other.

    I think there's a way, but MS won't approve. They stick them there so you can test them in upcoming revisions *Smile

    Thanks for the tip, but I never combine icons. As you can see from my earlier pic, those 2 items are covering my open Chrome page. I will give Rickkins link a peek.

    Much nicer, but to bad it doesn`t stick *Sad

    Did you create a shortcut of the .exe file and put it in your Startup folder?

    No, will that make it stick ? Or will I just have to click the file on each bootup ?

    The WinTHButtonHider application works okay, just one small glitch; I have to click on the 2nd taskbar to make the placeholders disappear.

    It should work, with the possible exception in my previous post.

    No, adding it to startup does not work.

    Hi

    I don't have that on my task bar?

    My properties are set to Always Combine Hide Labels.

    All I see, on mine is the little magnifying glass icon.

    When I click on that it opens a search window?

    If you are having problems with having enough space for all of your icons check out Rocketdock.
    It works great.
