How to remove the “My Settings” from the menu in edit mode

  • Updated

The following are three different ways to remove "My settings" from the menu in edit mode:

1.By code:

public class CustomMenuAssembler : MenuAssembler
public CustomMenuAssembler(IMenuProvider[] menuProviders, IServiceLocator container) : base(menuProviders,

{ }
public override IEnumerable<MenuItem> GetMenuItems(string parentPath, int relativeDepth)

var menuItems = base.GetMenuItems(parentPath, relativeDepth).ToList();

var settingsItems =
menuItems.Where(x => x.Path.StartsWith("/global/user/settings", StringComparison.Ordinal)).ToList();

if (!settingsItems.Any())
return menuItems;

// Add user group check here

foreach (var settingItem in settingsItems)
return menuItems;

//And registering the new menu assembler:

public class CustomMenuInitialization : IConfigurableModule
public void ConfigureContainer(ServiceConfigurationContext context)
context.ConfigurationComplete += (o, e) =>
context.Services.AddSingleton<MenuAssembler, CustomMenuAssembler>();

public void Initialize(InitializationEngine context) { }

public void Uninitialize(InitializationEngine context) { }

public void Preload(string[] parameters) { }



2. Add location section in web config to deny permissions
<location path="EPiServer/Shell/Settings">
        <deny users="*" />

Remove the file MySetting.aspxs from the zip in the path below and put somewhere outside the web folder for future reference.
