When I switched to Windows 11, I noticed that the biggest adjustment that I had to make was the location and the icons in the Taskbar.
During my exploration, I noticed the existence of the Search Icon in the Taskbar. I also noticed in the Start Menu there is a section that says Type here to search, which has the same functionality as the Search Icon. That is why I removed the Search Icon and freed up some icon real estate on my Taskbar.
If you want to remove the Search Icon in your Windows 11 Taskbar, follow the instructions below.
