Ever wanted to remove that Meet Now icon on your desktop? Here’s how to do it.
If you have already upgraded your Microsoft software to Windows 10, you probably received notifications and prompts of the new features. As you will notice, there will be this Meet Now taskbar icon, which was launched last October this year. Right after that, then the company has been longing to introduce the specific specs of this extra feature to the consumers. And by now, you may have wondered what does it do or even how to remove it.
Wonder no more, for we will tackle what this Meet Now and how to remove it (if ever).
So, what is Windows 10 Meet Now?
Meet Now is specifically a feature for Skype. This is an extra where users will be able to do a video conference in just a few clicks. The only difference that this feature makes would be that the video conference users or participants don’t need to have a Skype account. All they have to have for them to be able to join and engage in the magic link of the conference itself. This link will be given and created by the conference creator right before the online forum.
However, if the user has his Skype ready, the participant will automatically join the conference. If the app is not yet installed on the user’s Windows 10 desktop, they will still be able to use a web browser. The only downside to this, though, is that the participant won’t be able to use the video feed.
Microsoft has then added a Meet Now icon to make it easier for a user to have easier access to its operating systems in creating and joining conferences. But if you are one of the users who don’t want to use it and don’t know how to remove, you may follow these easy steps we have listed below:
Here’s how to Remove the Meet Now Feature:
There are actually multiple options on how to remove this one, but we have simplified it for users to delete it quickly. Here are the steps:
- Do a right-click on the Meet Now icon.
- Select Hide from the context menu, which opens.
- Then, it will be removed just like that.
- Open Setting application on your Windows 10
- Click Start, go to Settings then, Personalization > Taskbar
- Choose “turn system icons on or off” and select “Meet Now.”
- Click off now
Microsoft Spills Windows 10
As the end of the year arrives, the multi-tech corporation Microsoft is yet to announce plans for 2021 publicly. The new launch of the business is the Xbox X/S series that occurred last November 12. However, for Windows 10, an imminent upgrade in the form of Windows 10x could only arrive for the next year on their operating system (OS). It is also teased that Android apps in the Microsoft region will also be featured.
Windows 10X, unfortunately, won’t be ready for release in 2020 with the year reaching its closure, but it is anticipated to make its appearance in the first half of the coming year. An intense battle with the new Chrome and iPad OS is already seen when the next Microsoft OS will find its way to the ARM-based operating systems utilized today by most persons, organizations, and enterprises.
