Is that possible? Thanks.
Open the same thing, and where it says "Turn System Icons On or Off" near the bottom left, go into that and change the Action Center icon to Off
. It will never show the icon though, so if you get a notice, it won't show that icon. It's either or, take your pick.
That only gets rid of old icons that were placed in the system tray by programs you may have uninstalled and the icons are left in the Notification Area window. It won't stop the action center icon from showing.
