Stop prompt to keep the search box in the Taskbar hidden.

Samantha Ruhnke 20 Reputation points


I have disabled the setting with a configuration profile in Intune.

CSP: ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Search/ConfigureSearchOnTaskbarMode

This has left the options Settings > System > Notifications & actions, then uncheck the boxes in this section: > Show me the Windows welcome experience. > Suggest ways I can finish setting up my device. > Get tips, tricks, and suggestions.

The settings are greyed out, yet my users still receive the prompt to keep the search on the taskbar. Is there any way to resolve this?

Thank you.

    @Samantha Ruhnke Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

    For this issue, did you deploy this custom profile via intune successfully? Based on my check, this CSP is under development and only applicable for Windows Insider Preview builds.

    Thank you for that information. I noticed the setting applied only to Windows 11 devices. Alternatively I had found a script that performs the tasks of removing Task View and swapping the search bar for a search icon in the taskbar.

    Thank you for your help!
