    Unwanted icon on taskbar


    Just had a windows update and after the restart, a weather icon appeared on the bottom right of my task bar. I right clicked it to try to exit it, get rid of it. Did not have that option so I went in to the "start" program to find it and couldn't unless it was named something I did not recognize. How do I stop it from being on my task bar? Windows version number 2004 (OS Build 19041.1052)

    :)

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.
