Removing Chat from Windows 11 Taskbar

Hi all,

quick one today! 😱

How to remove the seemingly useless version of Team (called Chat) from Windows 11. Wish they allowed work and school accounts as the interface is quiet slick!

Right click the taskbar -> TaskBar Settings -> untick ‘Chat’ in the menu

It’s as simple as that! Normally, Microsoft makes it MUCH harder to remove or hide default bloatwa… sorry, software.

Some images here just for a the visual peeps!

Enjoy! 🎉
