Check How to Hide the Taskbar Search Button on Windows 11 PC

Search plays a big role in Windows 11, which is why Microsoft puts a search button on your taskbar by default. If you never use it or just want to save space, you can disable it. We’ll show you how to turn the search button on or off based on your preferences. Alternatively, and perhaps an easier way to remove the search icon, is to right click on it. Then click Hide from taskbar when it appears. Just note that to turn the icon back on, you need to go to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar and turn the switch on.

Looking for a way to remove the search icon from the Windows 11 taskbar to free up more space for the icons that are important to you? In Windows 11, the new Start menu includes a search box at the top that you can use to search directly. I think there is no need to keep the Search button on the taskbar. In this tutorial, we will show you 2 quick ways to hide or remove search button from taskbar on Windows 11 PC.

Search in Windows 11 made easy

  • The process is simple if you need to find a file, folder, application or other items on your Windows machine. All you need to do is press the Windows key on your keyboard and start typing what you need. For example, I pressed the Windows key in the screenshot below and started typing: cmd to find and open the command prompt.
  • The Start menu has a search field at the top, but it automatically places your cursor there when you start typing your query. So you don’t have to click on the search field first. Just start typing.

Remove search icon from Windows 11 taskbar

  • Since searching is as easy as pressing the Windows key and typing, having a search icon seems redundant. To remove it, open Settings by going to Start > Settings or by using the keyboard shortcut Windows key + I.
  • When it opens, click Personalization in the menu on the left. Then scroll down and click on the taskbar from the list on the right.
  • On the next screen, click to expand the “Taskbar Items” menu if it isn’t already. Then turn off the Search switch.

That’s it. The search icon will disappear immediately. If you want to add it back later, go back to Settings and turn it back on.

alternative method

  • Alternatively, and perhaps an easier way to remove the search icon, is to right-click on it. Then click Hide from taskbar when it appears. Just note that to turn the icon back on, you’ll need to go to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar and turn the switch on.
