Remove task view from Windows 11 taskbar using registry (PowerShell) with Endpoint manager Intune

How to change registry value to disable task view icon on Windows 11 taskbar using a PowerShell script deployed with Microsoft Endpoint manager Intune

Disable task view on Windows 11 taskbar

There are no Endpoint Manager configuration profile settings available to hide the task view button on the Windows 11 taskbar. The only way to remove task view is by adding a registry key under the users profile.

In this guide, we will use Microsoft Endpoint manager to deploy a PowerShell script that sets the registry value to hide the task view button.
