    Hi,

    How do I remove the "Show Favorites" Screen Shot 2019-07-20 at 10.31.38 AM.png icon from my Safari bookmarks bar?

    Its taking up space in my bookmarks bar I need.

    Thanks!

    Re-read my post.

    You're not getting me.

    Your solution is about hiding the ENTIRE "Favorites Bar" of safari.

    No.

    I merely want to delete/remove the one, single, "Show Favorites" icon that is IN the
    "Favorites Bar" of safari (to the far left) to make way for more favorites to show.

    I do not use Show Favorites.

    Waste of space as far as I'm concerned.

    Do you have a way to remove this icon?

    Holding Command and trying to drag it off doesn't work.

    It ignores a right-click on the icon.

    Solution?

    Thanks!

    Open Safari. Click on View. Click on Hide Favorites Bar.

    Once again . . .

    I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT THE ENTIRE FAVORITES BAR !!

    I am talking about one, single icon, IN the Favorites Bar.

    This icon is located to the farthest left of the Favorites Bar.

    When you hover your mouse over it you see, "Show Favorites".

    This "Show Favorites" icon cannot be moved by left-clicking
    on it and moving it anywhere else along the Favorites Bar
    like all the other bookmarks I have in the Favorites Bar.

    Clicking on that "Show Favorites" icon in the Favorites Bar takes
    me to a page with all my bookmarks.

    I want to get rid of this one, single, "Show Favorites" icon in the
    Safari Favorites Bar . . . NOT the entire Favorites Bar.

    Thanks!

    I understand the request but haven't found a solution yet.

    However, I'm not familiar with Safari so how do you view your list of favorites if you don't click on the "Show Favorites" icon? Do they display automatically as a list when you open the browser?

    What version of Safari are you on?
