    That arrow is there to indicate how the list of tasks has been sorted. It means ascending or descending order.

    I don't think you can remove it, as it's a fundamental part of the Windows UI. You may be able to remove it via a system UI file hack, but I wouldn't recommend it.


    You can also right click that section, and untick the checkbox. That will remove the section, if that's what you mean.
