Right click on "empty space" in the taskbar.  From the context menu that appears choose Search and from the three choices presented choose "Hidden" if you want absolutely nothing shown (in which case you can still search by hitting WinKey and just starting to type your search terms immediately) or "Show search icon" if you'd prefer a button to be present.
