    What operating system are you referring to?

    For Windows, the icons are created in ${windows_folder_appdata}/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Quick Launch/User Pinned/TaskBar and the name is the name of either binary or shortcut it was pinned from - such as for myapp.exe and shortcut called MyApp Launcher the safest way is to delete myapp*.lnk.

    For OS X, this may require creating a script that modifies persistent-apps in using defaults command. This is discussed in more details on OS X forums:

    Unfortunately there is no simple command that allows removing an application from taskbar for OS X.
