Hide Gadget in Windows 10

I am not sure what has been changed on my windows 10, and started saying all types of Gadgets or whatever they are called on my desktop.
I looked for a way to find how to hide them, but in vain. I even downloaded the classic shell, but sill did not help.
The screenshot below shows the Gadgets that are displayed on the desktop.

Any help ?

Thank you

That is Windows 10. Right click on anything you do not want and unpin from Start. It will go away.

Those ae tiles -- I call it the Baby's First Computer interface.  The first thing I do after installing Windows 10 is get rid of them all and install Classic Shell, so I have a usable Start menu.

Whatever you wish to call them, right click and unpin.

We make our own choices, but I see no need for and do not use Classic Shell (or the tiles).

what you have done is change your start menu settings
you've turned it on, so turn it off

I followd what John Hurst stated and it worked I had to Unpin one gadget at a time.

I realized the keyboard shortcut "Windows icon + D or +E or + any Key" is not working

If keyboard shortcuts are still not working, run SFC /SCANNOW from an Admin Command Prompt. Restart after it has completed.

Make sure to follow David's post.
I cannot recall if Tablet Mode shows a taskbar too, so you should check if Tablet Mode is switched on if the other hints do not help.

You have Tablet Mode enabled. and at full screen
click on the Notifications bottom right taskbar, click on tablet mode again this puts everything back to the new taskbar
tablet mode
To hide the taskbar popout you can either drag some of the screens back to the left or delete them that uninstalls them then you grab the top or the right edge and drag in.
All these windows on the right side panel are from the Left!!

jskfan, I understand now with regards to the new notification icon, sorry matey that cannot be hidden without tinkering with it's registry key.
The reason for this change is that Windows 10 handles all notifications through the "New Notification Center", which combines traditional app notifications for desktop apps with modern app alerts, alarms and reminders, and social media updates.
Because it acts as a Center all you can do is choose what types of notifications you want to see such as tips about Windows /app notifications/ news/updates etc
Here is how to Enable or Disable Action Center using a REG file this will disable everything to do with notifications I would use with caution and consider first if customising the notifications and
maybe a safer approach is to  auto hide your taskbar just rightclick it then properties tick to auto hide
auto hide the taskbarQuote:
System icons, including Clock, Volume, Network, Power, Input Indicator, and Action Center are special icons that are part of Windows.
 For these icons, you can change how the icons and notifications appear, and also whether they show up at all. You might turn off a system icon if either you or your computer manufacturer have installed a similar program. If you turn a system icon off, you can always turn it back on later.
Turning off a system icon removes the icon and turns off notifications.
David Johnson, CD, MVP has already posted the screenshots and so has John Hurst.

cheers
