Adobe Photoshop has many menu items, some of which we rarely, if ever, use. You can hide these unused items to make your Photoshop menus look tidier. If you ever need them again, you can easily restore hidden options.
Hide menu items in Adobe Photoshop
You can hide any option in Photoshop̵
Launch Adobe Photoshop on your computer to get started.
When the app opens, click on the ‘Edit’ menu at the top and select ‘Menus’.
You will see a list of all your Photoshop menus. Click the menu from which you want to remove an item.
The menu expands so that you can now see all the options. To hide an option, click the eye icon next to the option name. This will remove the eye icon from the white box, meaning the item is now hidden.
Click “OK” in the top right corner to save your changes. The menu option is now hidden.
Make a menu item visible in Adobe Photoshop
If you need a menu option back, you can restore it, and it will reappear in your menus as if it never left.
To do this, launch Photoshop and click Edit> Menus, just like you did when you hid the menu item in the first place. You will see a list of menus. Select the menu for which you want to make an option visible.
Click the white box next to the option you want to unhide. This will add an eye icon to the box. Then click on “OK”.
Bonus: Make frequently used menu items easy to find
If your menus are cluttered, you don’t necessarily have to hide other options to make your favorite menu options stand out. You can assign custom colors to your frequently used menu options to make them easier to find.
To do this, open Photoshop and click Edit> Menus.
Select the menu item you want to assign a color to, click “None” next to the item in the “Color” column, and choose a color for your item.
Your menu item will now look completely different from the other items in that menu. Now you don’t necessarily have to hide menu options to find the ones you need.
