Lenovo Power Manager and system tray - Windows 10

2016-11-13, 18:30 PM

I have Thinkpad W550s running Windows 10 Pro, upgraded from Win 7 Pro. The system tray has this battery icon.

When I right-click on it, I am offered "Launch Power Manager". In Windows 7 this opened a Lenovo app with some interesting capabilities, such as charge/discharge limits when on AC power; however, these capabilities did not often work.

After upgrade to Windows 10, the Lenovo app no longer works. Sometimes it brings up the app splash screen and just freezes there. Lately it doesn't even bring up that.

Does anyone know how I can simply get rid of this battery icon?

 

Solved! See the solution

It's a "toolbar".  Right click on the taskbar and deselect it.

doh!
It's been so long since I ever tried to manage contents of system tray that I forgot. Now I can make visible the newer Lenovo Battery Gauge. Thanks.
