How to Enable to Show Search Icon on Taskbar in Windows 10?

Windows 10 has been revamped immensely from its predecessor especially the Search feature. Windows 10 has consolidated the PC search and the Bing Search. The Search feature in Windows is powered by Bing Search. This means you can Search any topic in the internet straight from your Desktop by tapping the Search Icon. However the same option can be accessed from the Start Menu options. Unlike Windows 7, the Start Menu provides web results as well. Hence many users might find the Search icon on Taskbar as a repetition and waste of space. So in case you feel to remove the Search Icon, you can. The following tutorial will help you to show search button or not in Windows 10.

Did not work. Your Step #2 does not show up in my Windows 10. It gives three options with Sow App Icons and Show Touch Keyboard and Show all notifications. Now what?

This demo, and all others I’ve found, display a Taskbar menu unlike the actual W10 taskbar menu. The real one is white on black and has NO Search selection, nor Properties. Nearly all the selections are different. Perhaps this is a demo from an older Windows version?
