 • To Hide the "New Window" link – uncheck ‘Enable New Window’ on web profile (General tab): PeopleTools > Web Profile > Web Profile Configuration
 • To Hide the "Help" link – blank out Help URL on web profile (General tab): PeopleTools > Web Profile > Web Profile Configuration
 • To Hide the "Customize Page" link – set the Option Default Value of the User Option CUSTOMPGSET to ‘No’ in Personalization Options : PeopleTools > Personalization > Personalization Options (PPTL option level category)
 • To Hide the "HTTP" link – there is currently no delivered method to globally force the removal of the copy URL link which displays as "HTTP".  It can be removed on a per-component basis by either un-checking the pagebar or the Copy URL feature in the Application Designer definition.  Additionally, Peoplecode could also be customized via the CopyURLLink Page class property.  Further customization could also take the path of opening the HTML object PORTAL_UNIHEADER_NNS within Application Designer and customizing the header to remove the links as desired.  There are no open enhancement requests to deliver this feature.
 Of course all of these items can be removed on a per-component basis by either removing the individual link or disabling the entire Pagebar within Application Designer.  See the image below with the Pagebar highlighted for a Component Properties page.  This can be access in Application Designer, by right clicking on a Component to access the Component Properties and then navigating to the  Internet tab.
