Can't delete Diablo 3 Launcher from taskbar

Posts: 504
Installed the game and pinned Diablo 3 Launcher to taskbar. It's a blank icon and I can't remove it. Anyone know a fix?

Btw, you just want to pin to taskbar "Diablo 3" application, not the Launcher

I couldn't even get the launcher to pin to the taskbar. I got the application pinned and removed by right click >>remove from taskbar. I am guessing you have tried that one and thats why you posted here. Maybe its a glitch and a restart might fix?

There is no way to fix this, I've tried just about everything, including restoring the folder to a previous version from days ago, and the icon is still there.

I did the same thing. I was able to fix it. Just pin the d3.exe not the launcher. It will still launch the launcher.

TLDR. If you select the D3 exe in the start menu you can right click that one and "unpin" should be there.


Excellent, that worked, thanks!

What should someone do if there isn't an "unpin from taskbar" option, even when accessed from the start menu? This is my issue.

Go to the start menu search function and search for diablo iii, then, right click on diablo iii under the programs menu, then click remove from taskbar.

Thank the heavens! That worked for me after numerous failed attempts at other workarounds.

Thank you, this solution helped for me as well for SC II. I did not have the right click dialogue so finding it in the start menu worked like a charm. Thanks again.

Thanks! I've been wondering what the issue is with this for a long time, since I don't even play Diablo 3 much at all anymore..I'm thinking Blizzard wants to enslave people and will not let their influence wane so easily, they want people to have to stare at their !@#$ even if they don't play it..SHAME ON THEM.

Hi I'm having a similar issue but with mine the old launcher before I got the expansion RoS is still on my taskbar and i can't figure out a way to remove it. When i bring up the game through the start menu the option shows pin to taskbar. So I don't know how to remove the old launcher. Any ideas???
