    Open up regedit.exe run box, and locate the following key
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    Now you have to create a new 32-bit DWORD value :
    • 32-bit DWORD Name: NoTrayItemsDisplay
    • Value: 1


    Log off and Login back to see the changes, you won't find the system tray icon anymore.

    Do the following steps:

    1. Open Control Panel
    2. Double click on the Sounds and Audio Devices icon.
    3. Sounds and Audio Devices Properties window will open.
    4. At the center of the screen is a white box next to Place volume icon in the taskbar. To disable the speaker icon, simply remove the check mark from the white box.
    5. Then click on the OK button
    6. Close the Control Panel.
