    Remove keyboard & brightness icons in Settings Charm?

    I'll have to come back and add screenshots to this later - if they are needed - but what I want to do is remove the inactive (and thus un-needed) brightness control and keyboard control icons in the Settings Charm panel.

    These icons appear on the right side of the six available icons in the Settings Charm (Windows + I for shortcut).

    Also, I'm new to this forum, and as a former IT tech, I realize that information gets lost or misplaced. If this topic needs to be moved, forgive me, and I won't mind if this is moved.

    They are a part of the coding for the Metro Interface. No way to remove them.
