Hi Wi , 

 

Greetings.

 

If hiding the notification icons on right click and customize would not work , try to re do again the same process and manually shutdown the pc using the power button . Restart to check. 

 

Before doing any registry tweak aside from doing a back up first , you can try to use the mouse property to remove from system tray .  Uninstalling the same elan from programs and features and reinstall from the support site can help refresh the drivers too. 

 

Update us how it goes. 

 

Regards

Hi Wi , 

 

Did you try shutting it down manually after the change?

You can remove it from the start up using msconfig , just like custumizing the start up devices just like clean boot.

It would not mean you remove it , it is only on manual mode. 

 

Otherwise you can proceed with the registry if needed instead of uninstalling the specific driver losing the gestures.

 

Update us how it works for you.

 

Regards

yes, just tried manually shutting down. its not work.
and its work to remove the icon by using msconfig, but all gestures stop working.
would you like to show me how to remove it by regedit.
because i can't find "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TrayNotify"
in Win10
Thank so much for your help.

Hi,

Same problem here, I search and find anything to get rid of the tray icon. Did you solve this issue?

Hi again,

I was able to mitigate this by disabling the related service in services console.
