Windows 7: Remove icon from quick launch toolbar

Remove icon from quick launch toolbar

When I downloaded the Weatherbug program I checked the box next to "add icon to quick launch toolbar" Now the icon [temperature] appears on my taskbar in two places. One next to the start button and one next to the date. I have Foxfire 26.0 running on Windows 7.
I would like to remove the icon next to the start button. How is that done?
Thanks
Walt

Did you try "right clicking" the icon and select "Unpin this program from taskbar"?

FYI, the "Quick Launch Bar" is no longer available by default, but can be added by following the instructions at the following site;

Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

That's not a Quick Launch icon, in fact your screenshot shows no Quick Launch toolbar at all. That is a taskbar icon for a running application.

Check settings on that application; usually if an application is designed to show information on notification area it has an internal setting to disable taskbar icon.

It was a preference setting in the Weatherbug App. Thank you so much Kari for the heads up.
