The Taskbar on the Windows platform that's located (by default) at the bottom of the computer screen, displays what applications are currently running, as well as Icons for utilities such as the system clock, volume control, network Icon and more. Depending on your computing environment, you may wish to hide certain Icons, or perhaps each and every one. As such, In this tutorial, I will show you how to natively hide taskbar Icons In Windows 10.
Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. In my example as per the Image below, the system clock, volume control, and network & battery Icons are made available by default. If you're familiar with Avast antivirus and Malwarebytes anti-malware, you'll see that they're also active, which are my Installed applications.
If you're the type of user who pins an array of apps and folders to the taskbar, and also have a significant amount of applications minimized, you'll find that It will become congested and eventually run out of room to accommodate and display the Items In an organized manner.
As a result, you can hide both the default Icons (volume control, battery Indicator etc), as well as user-Installed apps- as per my example above with Avast antivirus and Malwarebytes anti-malware.
I will demonstrate how to do this natively within the Windows environment, without the aid of third-party tools. It's a simple process, yet a somewhat hidden feature, so without further ado, let's see how this Is done.
