Lightroom Quick Tip: Hiding Modules

Happy Wednesday everybody! Here’s a quick for hiding modules you don’t ever use. For example, let’s say you don’t ever find yourself using the Web Module, or perhaps the Maps module or Slideshow module. If that’s the case, you can literally hide them view so you don’t have to see things you don’t use. Here’s how:

STEP ONE: Right Click anywhere up at the top to bring up the pop-up menu you see here. You’ll notice every menu item is checked which means every item is visible. Just choose which modules you don’t want to (like for example, I’m going to choose Web [as shown here] and Slideshow and “uncheck” them).

Above: There is no step two, but I did want to know you that now the Web Module and the Slideshow Module are hidden from view giving you a very tidy navigation bar up top. If you ever want those modules back, just right-click and choose them again from the pop-up menu.

That’s it — short and sweet. Hope you found that helpful. 🙂
