    How to Hide the Search / Task Buttons on the Windows 10 Taskbar

    You would think that Microsoft would have learned from their Windows 8 mistakes of forcing terrible features down people’s throats, but it looks like they’ve integrated a positively awful Search button / panel into the Taskbar. Here’s how to hide it using a registry hack.

    And again, this feature is terrible, and you should use the Feedback app to tell Microsoft just how dumb it is that you can’t turn this thing off.

    Note: we did contact somebody at Microsoft who said that it’s not possible to disable it at this moment.

    Update: there is a new method that uses a registry key, so we’ve updated the article with that method instead. You can also use this method to remove the Task View button as well, so we’ve explained that below.

    Removing Both Buttons the Easy Way


    on’t waste time hacking the registry unless you really want to. You can just download the reghack file that disables the buttons. Unzip and double-click on the .reg files that you want to use.

    Download the RemoveStupidButtons reghack from howtogeek.com

    Once you’ve clicked through the prompts, log out and back in again. You could, of course, use the secret trick to close and restart Explorer, but in our testing that was actually kinda flaky for this particular registry hack.

    Windows 10 is alpha, or beta right now. Are any of these tips going to be valid, when the real deal comes out?
