  • Hi,

    Based on my research, there was no related article about the feature. I suspect it is by design and you cannot remove it.


    If you right-click on it you can unselect "Peek at Desktop". At least this way it doesn't show the desktop anymore when you hover over it. You can still click on it to get to the Desktop.


    Hope above information can help you.

    If the reply helped you, please remember to mark it as an answer.

    Is there anything we can do with the registry setting so that it should get hide?

  • Hi,

    I'm afraid this cannot be achieved with registry settings.
    If more information is found, I will share it with you.
