Removing Copilot taskbar icon via Intune

Iron Contributor

I am trying to remove the Copilot tasbar icon from W11 23H2 using Intune.

 

I found this suggested method: https://hudson.tel/post/how-to-disable-new-copilot-preview-button-with-intune/

 

But it doesn't work, and further investigation in the test machine's registry shows that the registry entry ShowCopilotButton doesn't appear to exist (and if created manually it has no effect, whether set to 0 or 1).

 

Anyone got any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Hello David,

You might see if the group policy below to disable the Copilot feature itself may work better for you.

Thanks - that's got it sorted. I've created a proactive remediation which checks and then adds those two registry entries in your article.

It needs a reboot in order to get it to take effect once applied.
You're most welcome. Glad it could help.

Unfortunately, further testing have shown that this only works if the logged-in user has local admin rights (which most of them don't).

So back to looking for a solution...

Sorry to hear that. I hope you find a solution soon.
