[Updated] Looking to disable reading list in Google Chrome? Here’s how to do it

[Updated] Looking to disable Google Chrome Reading list: Here’s how to remove it from Bookmarks bar

New updates are added at the bottom of this story …….

The original story (published March 16, 2021) is as follows:

The latest version of Google Chrome has the version number 89 and was incorporated into the stable branch early this month. The update brings many new features.

For starters, the profiling unit has received a major revamp with an update where every user can now customize their profile with custom wallpaper and play around with various themes and color schemes.

The update also implements support for WebHID, which is an application programming interface that allows web applications to interact with Human Interface (HID) devices such as VR controls, gamepads, and joysticks.

And last but not least, the new Google Chrome playlist feature that allows users to save things they find worth reading for later or maybe just archiving purposes.

Before that, people relied on third-party plugins like Pocket for the same purpose, but now it’s cool to see Chrome has its own built-in functionality.

However, to add things to your reading list in Chrome, just click on the star icon inside the address bar and then select “Add to Reading List”.

These saved sites can then be easily accessed from the far left of Chrome’s bookmarks bar, as shown in the image above.

However, this implementation did not go well for everyone. Many now complain that the Reading List option takes up a lot of bookmark bar space – which is the space that can be used to keep additional bookmarks in mind.

Therefore, some users were looking for a way to hide it completely.

So this Reading List popped up near my bookmarks and it’s taking up way too much space for my bookmarks. I wonder how I can get rid of it.

Fortunately for you, we managed to get our hands on a simple solution.

You might realize that Google Chrome gives users a great degree of control over its features through mentions. And while most of the elements underneath may be experimental, they ultimately serve very well for those looking for a way to customize Chrome beyond what the front end allows.

This particular feature will now help us remove Reading List from bookmarks bar on Google Chrome by disabling it completely. Just follow the steps given below to get instant results:

1. Enter chrome: // flags / # read-later in the address bar and press the Enter key.
2. Select “Disabled” from the drop-down menu next to the Reading List option.
3. Restart Chrome.

Of course, the above series of steps are absolutely valid across any desktop operating system – be it macOS, Windows, or Linux.

Rather simple isn’t it? We hope that the workaround did the job for you. If so, be sure to let us know in the comments below.

It’s worth noting that as is usually the case with progressive subtractions, the Reading List feature may not be available to everyone (since it’s just getting started). The only way to get rid of it for now is the one we described above.

However, if you don’t want to go down this path but want Google to roll back the feature instead, it’s helpful to know that rollback will only happen when too many users send negative feedback about the feature to the company. So the best thing you can do is send your opinions as comments to the company.

Check out what a product expert said in the community recently She said Regarding this (translator):

It is not in my environment
I think it will likely be applied serially or in the form of “being distributed as a test to a small number of people”

As is often the case with Google, if you only want to apply it to everyone at once
We may pre-order 5% or 10% of users to see reaction in advance.
Ultimately it will apply to everyone
I think it will be pulled off a few times if it’s a fatal flaw or very unpopular.
(Aren’t there a lot of visual pull-ups?)

I think it would be a good idea to send “Jumada” as an opinion
I think it’s a good idea to post comments and say, “I’ve become more and more obstructive of the reading list. I want to get rid of it.”
