Today’s Question: As a follow-up to your question [about hiding panel sections in Adobe Lightroom Classic] there does not seem to be a way to remove Navigator panel (top panel on the left) in this way. Am I missing anything?
Tim’s Quick Answer: You’re not missing anything. The Navigator and Histogram sections at the top of the left and right panels, respectively, can’t be hidden in Lightroom Classic.
More Detail: As I mentioned in yesterday’s Ask Tim Grey eNewsletter, it is possible to hide individual panel sections to reduce clutter in Lightroom Classic. You can hide or reveal panel sections by right-clicking on the header area of any of the sections, and choosing the applicable section name from the popup menu.
However, I neglected to mention that the Navigator and Histogram sections at the top of the left and right panels, respectively, are “special” sections that can’t be hidden. You can collapse the Navigator or Histogram sections by clicking on the header for those sections, but you can’t hide them entirely the way you can with the other panels.
