How to hide the search button on the Windows 11 taskbar

Search engines are extremely important on many platforms, although sometimes it is not necessary to use the function in question. This is the case with the Windows 11 operating system, on many occasions we rarely use it. For this reason, we have the option to hide the button to search in the bar of tasks of Windows 11.

How to hide the search icon on the Windows 11 taskbar

Actually removing the search icon from the taskbar in the new version of Windows is extremely simple. All we have to do is right-click on the search button (the icon is shaped like a magnifying glass) and it is located at the bottom of the screen. A small option will appear saying “Hide from the taskbar.”

This way the search button will disappear from the taskbar immediately.

As an alternative, we can do the same from Windows Settings. The first thing we will do is go to Windows Settings by pressing the Windows key + i and we will have to go to Personalization> Taskbar. In the “Taskbar elements” section we will have to click on the switch that is on the right side of the “Search” option to click it and in this way it is deactivated.

After this, we will close the Windows Settings and the search button has completely disappeared from the taskbar. Likewise, if we press “Windows + S” we can continue searching the operating system.
