How to Hide Unused System Preferences in OS X

The OS X System Preferences application demonstrates the entirety of your valuable instruments to design your Mac the manner in which you need, yet it likewise has some that I will never utilize. That is the reason I got energized when I took in your can shroud the unused inclination applications without any problem. Let me give you how. 

Open System Preferences utilizing either your Dock symbol or from the Apple Menu in the upper left corner. 

When it's open, click on the View menu and afterward on Customize. 

Every one of your inclinations will presently show a check mark close to it. 

Uncheck the ones you need to stow away. 

For what reason would anybody shroud any of these System Preferences? 

I disposed of the MobileMe symbol since I previously relocated to iCloud. I needn't bother with it any more. I additionally evacuated the Startup Disk symbol since I don't plan to change my startup circle on my MacBook. Since my children don't utilize my Mac I disposed of the Parental Controls symbols. You should evacuate the Trackpad symbol in the event that you utilize a work area without one or the Mouse symbol in the event that you just utilize a Trackpad on your MacBook. Perhaps you needn't bother with the Universal Access device or never change Spotlight settings. 

At the point when you're done nuking the unneeded symbols, click Done at the highest point of the window and close it. 

Suppose you find that you have to get one of these shrouded symbols back. You can either betray by tapping on the View menu and picking Customize again and review the shrouded symbols. This makes them return. 

Imagine a scenario where you just need that System Preference application once however don't have any desire to reestablish it constantly. You can tap on Show All and hold down your mouse or trackpad button until the rundown of System Preferences Apps shows up posting even the covered up applications. Locate the one you need and open it from that menu.
