So, this is probably fairly easy. But it's been a while since I've been anywhere else than Visual Studio. I want to hide e.g. Tasks, Calendar and Site Pages in the "Quick Launch". Where do i find the option for doing this?

Here is article with everything about quick launch menu and items inside: http://www.endusersharepoint.com/EUSP2010/2010/06/04/navigating-sharepoint-2010-part-2-the-quick-launch/ (...maybe with more information then you need). Do you have enabled Publishing features on your site?

    So be aware, that you can find Quick launch items in two places, in Site Settings -> Look and Feel -> Navigation or at this link http(s)://portal/sc/site/_layouts/quiklnch.aspx. (just go to site settings and rename settings.aspx to quiklnch.aspx in adress) It's a little bit tricky to live with both places.

If you want to specifically hide these elements, I'd say you'd have to use some javascript/jquery and hide it that way. But if you want to hide/remove the entire Libraries, Lists etc. you can go to Site Settings > Navigation > Current Navigation --> Mark the sektions and delete. You can at all times add them to the quicklaunch again.


You can delete specific items in quick launch like Calendar and Tasks as:

Site Settings -> Site Libraries and Lists -> Customize "Calendar"/"Tasks" -> Delete this list
