    How to get rid of unwanted taskbar items?


    I have found everything but what I am looking for!

    UNPIN UNWANTED ICONS FROM TASK BAR
    I just upgraded two systems to Win 10 this weekend but am having trouble finding out how to remove unwanted icons from the task bar.


    • Desktop
    • Downloads
    • Pictures
    • Documents
    • Music

    These take up space I prefer to use for desired icons. I don't need or want them there but there is no "un-pin" option for those. I have searched and all I can find are results to hide the entire task bar or instructions on how to add to the taskbar but not a word on how to remove those unwanted items.

    I would also like to know how I can un-pin one specific drive which is encrypted so it is not available on taskbar...it always wants me to format it! Better to hide from taskbar. Still needs to remain visible to encryption program of course.

    I still have time to return to Win 7 if I find Win 10 to be un-user friendly so hope someone has solved some of the problems with the upgrade.

    ( I already turned off all the privacy leaks MS installed ! *Wink )

    Thanks!
