    If you mean the Windows start icon? Try changing the taskbar to the bottom of the screen.

    It is not the task bar
    it is a small start window which occupies the space across the top of the screen
    it takes ujp a whole swatch of the screen real estate
    something like a banner would occupy the top of the screen
    I need to get rid of this item and recover the screen space

    Or toggle off tablet mode or Use Start full screen (Off).
    Best to hold the Windows logo key on your keyboard and strike the print screen key and then go to Pictures -> Screenshots and attach it to your next post so we can have a better idea of what you are seeing.

    Merged what were basically the same topic by the same person in two threads.
    Now three threads.

    At the very top of the Edge browser next to the last tab you should see a little down arrow. Click that to turn off tab previews
