[Classic Experience Only] How to Hide Office 365 App Launcher Icon in SharePoint

Office 365's App launcher icon is displayed wherever the Office 365 Suite Bar is present, including SharePoint sites. You might not want this to be the case and in this brief article I will show you a straightforward way to hide the App launcher icon.



To achieve the desired look, we'll have to add a few lines of Custom CSS to ShortPoint Theme Builder.

Navigate to Utilities > Custom CSS:

Step 2. Add the Custom CSS code

button#O365_MainLink_NavMenu, button#O365_MainLink_HamburgerButton {

If you are happy with the results, click Publish (2).
