I understand the purpose of Libraries and Homegroup but have no use for either. I would therefore like to remove them both from all navigation panes (including that of Windows Explorer, and those of Microsoft Office all other programs).
I have come across threads that show how to remove "Libraries" from Windows Explorer (but only from Windows Explorer) and how to stop individual libraries being shown. But I've been unable to find any information on removing the Libraries group as a whole, or remove HomeGroup from the navigation panes of all programs.
Does anyone know if this is possible?
