Windows 10 taskbar hidden icons

Hello,  I'm using Windows 10, and I use my taskbar on the left vertical position.  I need all of the real estate on the taskbar, so this is my question;
How can I remove the icons using up my space at the bottom of the taskbar?
From the "Help Blue Question Mark" to those in the red circle.

You can do two things:

1. Go to Settings, Personalization, Taskbar. Scroll down the right side and see "Select which icons appear on  Taskbar" . Set what you want and don't want.

2. Drag the icon into the hidden area (little Up icon on the taskbar.

Both work.

Before asking I should have gone searching.  I found the settings on the Control Panel.  Now I only have the "Blue Question Mark" and that is the "HP Support Assistant" icon.  Maybe I should ask HP.
While I am asking; where do the "System Icons" get displayed.  I think it is the main window, but the changes I made, might need a reboot.
I can't reboot now.

John and Ramin, thank you for the ideas.  I right clicked on the taskbar and found that there is a "enabler" on the list that popped-up, where I was able to disable the "HP Support."  Points are coming soon.
Thanks and I was happy to help.
I'm glad I could help, and Thanks.
