Hiding the Command Bar and Navigation Bar in Dynamics 365

Leave a comment

In Dynamics 365, we can hide the command bar and navigation bar through the Dynamics 365 browser URL. Let’s look at how to do this.

The navigation bar, or nav bar, is the top bar that has Dynamics 365 in the title. The command bar, or cmd bar, is the bar that has the New button etc:

Let’s look at a typical URL that displays an account. We see the formid and the id of the record:

https://yourorg.crm.dynamics.com/main.aspx?etc=1&extraqs=formid%3d8448b78f-8f42-454e-8e2a-f8196b0419af&id=%7bB293B650-73FF-E611-8104-E0071B669E61%7d&pagetype=entityrecord

If we add &cmdbar=false to the end of the URL, it will hide the command bar. So it should look like:

https://yourorg.crm.dynamics.com/main.aspx?etc=1&extraqs=formid%3d8448b78f-8f42-454e-8e2a-f8196b0419af&id=%7bB293B650-73FF-E611-8104-E0071B669E61%7d&pagetype=entityrecord&cmdbar=false:

If we add &navbar=off it will hide the nav bar. URL:

https://yourorg.crm.dynamics.com/main.aspx?etc=1&extraqs=formid%3d8448b78f-8f42-454e-8e2a-f8196b0419af&id=%7bB293B650-73FF-E611-8104-E0071B669E61%7d&pagetype=entityrecord&cmdbar=false&navbar=off#841249160

(Note the number like #841249160 appended to the end, ensure your parameters are before that)
