Do you have a card reader on your case?

Ahh you are a genius sir! all of your advices were spot on, I plugged in an sd card to the card reader slot it drive F lit up.

 

Will the greyed out drive always be there when nothing is plugged in ?

Yup, IIRC it only shows when you have this option unticked. In any case, you can always disable viewing of hidden files and that should get rid of it.

It's the option further up with the 2 radio boxes to hide hidden files, folders and drives

You can choose what icons to always see in the taskbar preferences also on Win11.

Ah, if you expand the tab yes it's always going to be there as long as there's a "removable" device connected, but that's no different than in 10 AFAIK.

It's likely counting the empty card reader as one

i did try to hide the hidden folder inorder to hide the drive but the icon is still there. I guess i just have to get used to that icon, its just i am used to a clean icon tray, with only my antivirus being there 🙂

 

Anyway, Thank you very much for your time helping me, It is greatly appreciated 🙂
