I would like to reclaim about 25% of my status line which is now occupied by a blank space that is some sort of MS search tool? Can I make it go away so the space can be used by program icons?

Hey JXBlack
If you are talking about the bar at the bottom of your screen, here is the solution.
  • Right Click on the bar at the bottom (not on the search box, but an empty space)
  • Go up to toolbars
  • Uncheck any thing that says search
  • The search box should be gone now
I hope that helps, please feel free to post if you have any questions
