Clean up Windows 11: Hide task view, widgets and search with Intune

The taskbar became fuller with Windows 11. In a previous blog I explained how to remove the teams icon or delete it completely. In this blog I want to explain how to hide the task view, widgets and search with the help of a remediation script.



Create the remediation script

  •  To deploy this toast menu to the clients, we open the MEM portal and navigate to Reports -> Endpoint analytics -> Proactive remediations
  • Click Create script package
  • Enter a name
  • Click Next
  • Upload the script as detection script and the remediation script
  • Select Yes for Run this script using the logged on credentials
  • Click Next
  • Click Next
  • Assign the Script to a group and click on Daily
  • Change the Schedule to Once (You can also select a other schedule like daily) and click apply
  • Click Next
  • Click Create


It is not a big deal to remove these 3 icons but it makes a lot of order in the task bar for the user. You have only to create an Endpoint Analytics script. The search, for example, can also be easily executed from the Start menu. It is also very easy for the user to turn some of this icons back on afterwards.

Now the taskbar doesn’t look so crowded anymore.

Stay healthy, Cheers
