Ubuntu – How to disable showing the “Activities overview” forever


With two monitors connected, the "Activities overview" is very annoying me when every time I click the applications button on Ubuntu 18.04.

  • You may use a GNOME shell extension called Hide Activities Button. This extension hides the Activities button from the top bar.

    Note that you'll still be able access the Activities overview by pressing the Super key (usually the key with Windows logo).

    Similar extension: Hide Activities Button (same name, different extension)
