Hide the OneDrive and SharePoint app tiles

By default, the OneDrive and SharePoint app tiles appear in the app launcher and on the Office 365 portal. If your subscription doesn't include one of these services, or if you don't want users using one of them, you can hide the app tile for it.

Office 365 start page with SharePoint selected


Hiding these services doesn't remove them for users. If users have saved the address of the service, they will still be able to access it.
If users click a tile for a service they don't have, they will see an Access Denied message.

To hide app tiles

  1. Sign in to https://admin.microsoft.com as a global or SharePoint admin to open the Microsoft 365 admin center. (If you see a message that you don't have permission to access the page, you don't have Office 365 administrator permissions in your organization.)


    If you have Office 365 Germany, sign in at https://portal.office.de. If you have Office 365 operated by 21Vianet (China), sign in at https://login.partner.microsoftonline.cn/. Then select the Admin tile to open the admin center.

  2. In the left pane of the admin center, under Admin centers, select SharePoint to open the SharePoint admin center. (You might need to select Show all to see the list of admin centers.) If the classic SharePoint admin center appears, select Open it now at the top of the page to open the new SharePoint admin center.

  3. In the left pane, select Settings.

  4. At the bottom of the page, select classic settings page.

  5. In Show or Hide App Tiles, choose the tile you want to hide.
