Hi there.
I have Windows 11.

I need help to remove the icon im showing in the attachment image on this post.

I installed Open Shell to change menu.
I used "Enable_classic_taskbar_in_Windows 11.reg" to change taskbar to uncombine the tasks in task bar.
I used Winaero Tweaker to change some features.

I dont know if its "Action Center"...
My W11 is in portuguese language... when i stop the mouse pointer on icon, the tooltip is written "Centro de Controle" (translating to english it would be "Control Center")

But i cant remove this icon. Can anyone help me ?

I attached this image 👇

Try this, then:
Click on the Action Center (where the icons of Wifi, volume, and battery are).
Right-click on an empty place and click on Edit quick settings.
Click on the unpin symbol at the top right corner of the Focus Assist icon.
Click Done.

Let us know if that works for you.

The Setting icon shouldn't be there. Try running sfc /scannow in Windows Terminal (Admin).

Sorry I didn't help. Maybe Fabler's suggestion will find an error and correct it.

The only method I know that will remove the Control Center icon is StartAllBack!
