I got my 10 today after waiting since it was released. On thing that got me was the ugly NFC icon, it is horrible!
Right bare with me...
You need a working ADB setup
Tap Settings > About > Software Information > More
Keep tapping build number until you're told you're a developer.
Plug your phone into your computer and open command prompt in your ADB folder. Type:
You should see your device show up. Following this type
adb shell settings put secure icon_blacklist [comma separated codes here] && adb reboot
For example, if you want to get rid of the NFC icon and the Bluetooth icon your command would look like this:
adb shell settings put secure icon_blacklist nfc,bluetooth && adb reboot
Note the lack of space between the NFC and Bluetooth commands.
That's it; Done!
Enjoy a less cluttered status bar!
Omar302 reminded me that you can hide other status bar icons using this method. This is a (likely incomplete) list of icons
Name Settings Description
zen Do not disturb
managed_profile Work profile
mobile Cellular Data
airplane Airplane Mode
One more thing worth noting:

So if you are tweaking the status bar one by one, keep a copy of your command in notepad
