    This morning I logged into my PC and the following showed up on my taskbar.  It looks like MS is using my MS email address (I never signed into my Microsoft account) to add this to my taskbar in preparation for Win11.  I have Win10 and use the “Classic Start” menu which is still active.

    How do I stop this icon from showing up on my taskbar?

    SOLVED-

    I figured it out.  I did a search from my taskbar and turned off “show highlights”

    What is frustrating is that I haven’t done a Windows Update or anything else differently and this just showed up this morning

    Custom Build
    Windows 10 Home 21H2 OS Build 19044.1706
    Intel i5 9400 5 Core CPU

      See AKB6000008 on how to remove Search Highlights (it’s a “Feature”).
