Windows 7: Turn off (not disable) Action Center icon via registry in Windows 10

Turn off (not disable) Action Center icon via registry in Windows 10

We can easily disable Action Center icon in Windows 10 via the following registry key:

But that will completely disable Action Center and its button will become gray, not possible to change its state.
I don't wanna disable it, just wanna turn it off, like we do manually in:
Settings > System > Notifications & Actions > Turn system icons on or off
For this one, I didn't find a registry key, also the following article does not work for Windows 10:

System Icons - Enable or Disable

Please help me find a way to just turn it off via registry without disabling and locking down the Action Center button.
* Must be via .reg or .bat.

Thanks in advance :)
