In a Sharepoint 2010 site there is "Shared Documents" on the site page by default
when the site is created.
I want to "hide" the "Shared Documents" on the page of the first site that is created but I
want it "visible" on all subsites that get created afterwards.
How can I make "Shared Documents" invisible on the page when the site is created but visible
on all of pages of all subsites are created?

How do you get rid of the "Shared Documents" that is in the middle of the "page"
with a Checkbox on the end where you can Edit Web Parts?
Note: Still any subsites created afterwards should contain "Shared Documents".

Can you provide a screenshot for explaining your second question?
Do you not want to show "Shared Documents" but still want to show any other document library? Or you don't care to show any document library whatsoever?

Hello Brian T. Shell
The reason I asked if the "Shared Documents" web part that appears by default could
be "hidden" or made "invisible" is because at some point it may be necessary for it to
The method you mention does "remove" the default "Shared Documents" web part
from the page but now if it needs to appear again how do I get it back in the same

Hello Soumya B
The method Brian recommends does "remove" the default "Shared Documents"
from the middle of the page which is what I was referring to if possible.
The problem is how to get it back in the same location?

If that's the case - edit the web part and set the chrome type to none under "Appearance"
The click on the Cheveron one more time and select "minimize"
This will hide it while the page isn't in edit mode.
