To Hide or Show Meet Now icon on Taskbar

Open the Settings app. See the details above.

Browse to Personalization > Taskbar.

On the right, click on the Select which icons appear on the taskbar link.

On the next page, turn on to show (used by default) or off to hide the Meet Now taskbar icon for what you want.

Note: The above only works when the Always show all icons in the notification area option is enabled.

All the hidden icons appear in a panel, which can be opened by clicking on the up arrow icon, as shown below.
