    Any one even looking at the threads asked here?
    Ths is my 4th or 5tyh question in this support forum and all my questions have become unanswered....
    Is this such a dull community or there is infact no one who can answer the questions asked by me..

    One way of doing it would just be to hide it using CSS.
    To do this, open /wp-admin/css/global.css

    and at the top of the page add the following:

    #screen-meta-links {
    display: none;
    }

    This file still exists in 3.0, so i'd be willing to bet it's still there in 2.8 and 2.9 ...

    The file exists but screen-meta-links isn't in global.css. 2.8.4. I can only see references to it in css colors fresh and classic. But they're only to do with the link colour.

    Try Firebug extension for FireFox. You'll be able to detect class/id and then you can add in the css rule even if it's not already in the css file.

    I've tried the CSS hide and it doesn't seem to work. Any other ideas?

    Worked great for me! i wish there was an all consuming plugin for the dashboard that included this feather, tho.
