I want to hide the hard drive so that it does not appear there.
Do you have any reason to believe this is possible?
Have you ever used an operating system where it was possible?
Yes I have reasons to believe it is perhaps possible.

Re: Remove Gnome Online Accounts

This disables the background service I follow your instructions and Cinnamon runs okay still. I understand it is my responsibility to beware consequences. Not surprising that errors show in Logs. After I log in 03:13:57 gvfs-goa-volume: monitor says it's not supported 03:10:49 gvfs-goa-volume: moni...

Re: Remove Gnome Online Accounts

Okay. That is disappointing. Thank you for your reply however.

In System Settings, Online Accounts, Information about GNOME Online Accounts, it says GNOME Online Accounts is a service which runs in the background

Can I disable the service so it does not run?

NVIDIA Prime applet required?

The NVIDIA Prime applet says cannot remove because it is a system applet. Is this applet needed if you do not have NVIDIA graphics card?
