is it possible remove the new "Wireless Projection Banner" introduced in 1809 or at the very least move it so that it does pop-up every time I touch a tab in my browser?

Hello,

Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

I understand that you want to remove the Wireless Projection Banner from the screen as it keeps popping when you open a browser. May I know, if the PC is still connected to the wireless display when you are using the PC?

Also, you can try clicking on the PIN icon next to the Settings icon on the banner to unpin it.

However, as per the section Wireless projection experience in the article what's new in Windows 10, version 1809, the banner is designed similar to remote desktop connection where it will be removed when the wireless display is disconnected.

Hope it helps.

Regards,

Thanks for your feedback.

the banner can be "unpinned" but that only hides it, not closes it; it still pops up with mouseover and there is no "close" option.  it can be slid left or right but not moved to another part of the screen, unlike the taskbar.  it's wider (left-to-right) than half the screen, so no matter what the center-top of the screen is blocked when the banner is visible.  it displays over what's behind it, rather than displacing items like the taskbar does.  it's wider (top-to-bottom) than the row of tabs in every browser i've tried, so even if it's unpinned it's far too easy to accidentally show it, blocking tabs or anything else underneath it - i've nearly disconnected accidentally multiple times as a result, and once actually did accidentally disconnect.  in the last week or so the settings icon on the banner became greyed out as well (???).  i have scoured Windows and the internet for a way to disable or remove the feature, but can find none.

i did discover a few hours ago, however, that when i leave the wireless display (in my case, a television) connected for more than 24 hours, the banner disappears - no pop-out, nothing.  i'd had my display connected for about 48 hours by the time i noticed it; it was still there roughly 24 hours in so it was sometime in that second 24 hours that it went bye-bye.  i don't want to have to leave my tv constantly connected though - i.e., constantly on and unable to change inputs; - just to be rid of the banner...i'd rather be able to turn it off entirely; even if i have to do it each time i connect instead of a global, default option, i'd be happy.

Simply annoying, more if you like to have the taskbar at the top of the screen. I like to have it there in my little Thinkpad.

I SOLVED it by renaming a file in c:\Windows\System32 named Windows.Internal.PlatformExtension.MiracastBannerExperience.dll

I've had to change the owner of the file from its Properties->Security->Advanced options->then at the top change the owner, next give permissions to Administrators users, and change the file extension to .old.

I've had to reboot for this lovely hack to take effect. I connected again to my Samsung wireless TV and no more stupid banner.

I don't know if this is a good advice but I've got rid of it.  I'm a simple user and won't be responsible if you burn your TV or Mars changes its orbit by renaming that file.

Please excuse my poor english.

MS please, why you call EXPERIENCE to things like this? If you add something to our work space, please let us disable it!! Or put it SMALLER.

Regards.

My problem is that the banner doesn't go away when the remote screen is disconnected. It exists, but all options are greyed out. How do I close it? I don't mind it there when it's connected because I can "unpin" it.

You cant be serious. Get rid of the banner, you couldnt have paid someone to come up with that stupid idea. Worse cant be moved from the top of screen the same place your internet broswer menu and tabs are. Instead of worrying about identity politics and PC **** work on the thing your paid for making Windows work correctly. If the banner doest go l will to Apple. Inbeciles

Same problem here. The banner is on even after disconnecting and worst after moving away to another location (from work to home, but I still need my laptop on). The pin is greyed. The only option is to click on "reconnect" and that does not work. 

I must add that I am so disappointed with Microsoft performance in this area: I have their Surface, their OS (windows) and their wireless display adapter and still there are so many problems. Not just this one, but often I am in the middle of a presentation or discussion and the display decides to go off with no apparent reason... so much for compatibility...

Does any body know what process is responsible for this banner so we can end it? I looked in the task manager window and it is not clear to me which one I should end.

I have the same issue sadly - the banner doesn't disappear after Disconnecting.

On my Surface Go this steals a huge amount of screen space, especially if I'm working in a browser with multiple tabs which are now hidden by the banner!
