Windows 10 comes with new search and task view buttons, which are built in on the taskbar. They take up valuable space on the taskbar. By default, search is represented by a textbox, which is quite wide and can take half of the taskbar on a small screen. Here is a tip which will allow you to save taskbar space.
To save taskbar space, you have at least two options. You can turn off the search box completely or turn it into a search icon. Both options can save you a lot of taskbar space.
Here is how to change the search width.
Disable the search box in the Windows 10 taskbar
Right click the taskbar to open its context menu. In the context menu, pick Search -> Hidden.
Show search as an icon on the Windows 10 taskbar
Here is an alternative. Right click the taskbar and select Search -> Show search icon from the context menu.
