I have the icons appear in the status bar. They appear even when there is no window open and do nothing when clicked.

It started happening after upgrading to 20.04.

How can I remove these icons?

    Looks like this is an extension-provided feature. Open the extensions app and keep disabling the extensions to find out the culprit.

  • Thanks, FYI for xomeone reading this in the future, I had to install the extensions app first: sudo apt install gnome-shell-extension-prefs
