The new Chrome update added an Apps bookmark to my bookmarks bar. It doesn't let me delete it, as the Delete option is greyed out.

Greyed out delete option

Clicking it doesn't show the gold star button like other bookmarks:

Gold star not appearing

I never use any apps on chrome - It's basically a link to a url. So I don't care if that's removed forever.

How do I remove it?

    You could just untick the Show apps shortcut option – Yass Sep 25 '13 at 20:19

The option you are looking for is in the menu you've shown a picture of. Simply uncheck "Show Apps Shortcut" to remove it.

  • I always wanted to get rid of it. I've right-clicked it many times but, just like OP, I see delete option disabled. Now, I searched for it today. Was it really that simple? I'm pissed. – Omar Tariq Feb 2 '15 at 1:28

Right-click the bookmark bar and unselect it.

Pretty lame on the part of Google.

They could have done a less invasive way of promoting their software.
