The number 1 thing voted for under Taskbar currently is to hide the new Search bar and task view buttons
To show that Microsoft is listening below is how you can hide these.
Hide Task View button
To hide the Task View button simple right click on the Taskbar and then un tick Show Task View button.
Hide Search Box

You can disable (hide) the search box
Show just a icon (like earlier builds of windows 10
or have the search box show
