Steps To Delete Yahoo! Search From Your PC

Yahoo! Search is a program that makes an index of the files that are present on your computer after the program is installed in your computer. This will allow the user to search that index of the programs from the Windows taskbar. After using the program, you may find out that it consumes too much of the display and you may wish to use it in a more stripped down mode.

The users have the option to set the Yahoo! Desktop Search to minimize to the system tray rather than the taskbar. This will help you to save the screen area. The users can also remove the program completely from their computer to prevent it from appearing at the bottom of the screen. The steps to remove Yahoo toolbar from your computer are explained below in this article.

Display Yahoo! Desktop Search In System Tray
  • Turn on your PC, open the Yahoo Search program, click on Tools tab, and select Options from the list. 
  • Check the box labeled Show Yahoo! Desktop Search icon in system tray if you wish to have immediate access to the Yahoo program without it being present in the taskbar.
  • As the next step, right-click on the Yahoo! Search icon located in the system tray.
  • Select Minimize Yahoo! Desktop Search to the system tray. This will make the program leave the taskbar when the user minimizes the program.
