Disable and Remove Windows 10 Notification Icon

Open Control Panel, go to Windows Update and click on Change Settings on the left pane.

Now change the option in the drop-down list from “Install updates automatically (recommended)” to a more favorable “Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them

After that is done, click the Installed Updates link in the bottom-left corner of the window.

It is advisable to sort the list of update by name.

  1. Look for the following: Update for Microsoft Windows (KB3035583)
  2. Right-click on it and select Uninstall
  3. Accept the option of restarting your system
  4. Remember how we disabled automatic updates? That was done to keep the notification from coming back!
  5. Re-visit the Windows Update panel, but this time, click on Check for Updates on the left pane
  6. After that, click on the number of updates available in order to bring up a list of available updates
  7. Seek out Update for Microsoft Windows (KB3035583)
  8. Right-click -> Hide

 

All done!
