    How to disable the virtual browse in the fullview in Primo Classic UI and the Primo Classic New  UI and Primo VE? 


    Since Primo 4.5, the Virtual Browse is automatically created, and it is based on the "callnumber"  field in the Browse section of the PNX record.

    To hide the Virtual Browse shelf, edit the CSS as follow:

    For Classic UI (old standard Primo Classic UI):

    .EXLTabsRibbon div li.EXLBrowseshelfTab {display:none} 

    For the New UI and Primo VE:

    /*CSS to Hide Virtual Browse and Virtual Browse Button/link on Full Display */ 
    #virtualBrowse {display:none;}
    button[aria-label="Virtual Browse"]{display:none;}

    You may need to adjust the value of the aria-label to match your display, such as "Virtual Browse by Call Number", and so on.
