Hi everyone!

 

I've tried to remove the lin on the navigation bar called "Shared with us". It appears whenever it wants and disappear...

 

I've read many posts but it looks that no one have tried or want to remove this link. Why? Help!

@gbartumeu Hello, If you change the List experience on library advance configuration, you can delete "Shared with us" link.

@daguirreChanging the List experience to Classic gets rid of many desirable things as well as the tedious "Shared with us" menu item

yeah this is certainly an example of horrible UX design by Microsoft, the "Shared with us" menu item injects itself into a random spot in the menu when you are in a document library. Not able to modify position or remove, wtf.

 

Looks like customisation is the only path, https://blog.jussipalo.com/2019/09/problem-for-apparently-nearly-3-years.html

 

 

@daguirre Unfortunately going to Classic Experience compromises the experience. There needs to be an easy way to disable/hide "Shared with us" link. There is a UserVoice request for this with over 100 votes:
