    Applies to when i had both windows 8 and 8.1 (before and after update)

    I try to change my icon tray to look like this: http://i.imgur.com/ZQ4YGrJ.png
    but when I do a complete shutdown they reset to this: http://i.imgur.com/EXNqxSK.png

    Can anyone help please? I know this works because ive done it on Windows 7 for more than a year. For some reason on my laptop it just wants to reset. This is a fresh install of windows 8 so it's not any third party software unless it's the preinstalled acer junk. Any help appreciated, thanks!

    The only difference between your 2 screenshots is the keyboard icon at system tray. Yes ?
    If you don't want the keyboard icon appearing at the system tray......
    right click at taskbar > click Toolbars > is there a checkmark at Touch Keyboard ?
    If yes, UN-check it.

    Editing from above ......
    RE : To remove ENG/US icon at system tray.

    At search bar, type and select region and language settings > right column, under Languages, make sure you have only one language listed.

    No Im includng the icons aswell. My issue is when I change those (adding a toolbar and removing keyboard icon) they come back as soon as I reset. For some reason it wont save what ive done

    Edit: Also the quick launch icons that ive added myself disappear and I have to re add them
