Windows 10 Lost in 22H2 after switching from a 21H? version

Recently, I upgraded (fresh install), to Windows Home version 22H2, and frankly, I am lost in the changes.

I need help with eliminating OneDrive's Desktop (and any other related feature), which still exists after I properly removed OneDrive, using Microsoft's uninstall instructions.

In addition, I would like to remove the notification icon from the taskbar, (which looks like an old TV set.) The old "Disable_notification_area_on_taskbar.bat" of 2017 no longer works.

See if you canrempve it through the correct way in settings an notifkcatilns. Bat files often become inoperative after updates
 
Can you be specific as to what you are referring to?

There was no batch file to uninstall OneDrive. I followed instructions provided by Microsoft to uninstall One Drive.

The second issue of removing notification icon, if I didn't mention that the old batch file doesn't work, please accept my apologies.
 
Should only need to go into 'System Settings > Apps' an uninstall
A few directories will still exist you can manually just remove.

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft OneDrive
C:\Users\<username>\OneDrive
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\OneDrive
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneDrive
