I am trying to read some info manuals in Emacs , and there is Prev Next Up showing up all the time . Does anyone know how to remove it ? I tried a few things mentioned in this link , but it doesn't help .

(setq info-use-header-line nil) 
M-x info-header-node
(setq info-header-line nil)‎

I prefer a cleaner display when reading Info format books for example . Using 24.3 Emacs.

Kill the info buffer and start a new one after changing that. It only takes effect at buffer creation time. Also: Info-use-header-line (case matters).

Thanks thats correct ! For others M-x customiz-variable RET Info-use-header-line RET - set it to off or ... (setq mode-line-format nil) (setq Info-use-header-line nil) alternatively to remove mode-line also – Nishant Jan 24 '14 at 15:17
