I'm having trouble removing items from the sidebar in the finder window. I can right click on Applications, and ill have options for it saying "remove from sidebar". However, I have a lot of things on my sidebar that don't even let right click on them and remove them. How do I go about removing things from the sidebar?
On Lion, items that cannot be removed from the sidebar are usually listed under "Devices" or "Shared" (there are Snow Leopard counterparts to these as well). If you'd rather not see these items in the sidebar, you can remove them by following these steps.
With Finder focused, visit Finder->Preferences or ⌘, and select the Sidebar tab.
Uncheck items that you don't want shown in the sidebar
