In photoshop 2022 (version 23.2), photoshop implemented a Blue Share button in the

top right corner of the app workspace that is supposed to turn into a button of the sme color as

the other tool options bar icons.

 

With the latest 23.2.2 update the Blue Share button does not go away after first use as described

on this page under Easily find the Share button

 

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/whats-new/2022-1.html

 

I reset the photoshop preferences as i do after every photoshop update by trashing the preferences folder.

 

 

 

Share button that the Blue Share button is supposed to appear as after first use

In the 23.2.2 update the button still stays as a Blue Share button after first use

Updating status.

 

Please use Preferences > Interface > Neutral Color Mode to adjust the Share button's color.

I don't know how to hide it, but you've got my vote to hide it or at least turn it grey like the rest of the user interface

Yea!

Gray is also a good alternative. the blue color irritates me when i work because everything else is grey. My eyes always see the blue glow at the top right. 😞

You have my vote to, it's so distracting, I had it hidden before the 23.2.2 update as far as I remember, I think I just clicked on the share button and then selected cancel and it disappeared, can't make it go away now though

Same over here - it's really distracting to be honest.

Can you see if this works to make the Share button go away:

  • Click the Blue Share button once
  • Click Cancel

EDIT: This method worked in 23.2.1. My computer wasn't showing the update to 23.2.2 yet. It no longer works in 23.2.2.

@jane-e  Unfortunately, with today's 23.2.2 update that does not clear it. 😞

@Ged_Traynor how did you do that? (God, what a fool I am, I get it! 😂😂😂)  

 

UPD: 

I remembered that I wrote a script to modify interface colors, for which many reproached me - Photoshop Purple Skin 

That's where it comes in handy 🙂 Use code from EDIT 5, in script's filter field, enter ShareButton, and make it gray!

It distracts me, not because I don't like it, but because it 'aggressively' invites me to click it!

Please switch the SHARE button to a middle gray.  This bright blue is surprisingly effective at distracting from my work.  Adobe obviously knows that their interface should be nearly monochrome; that's why they allow for it to be largely middle gray.  

 

This SHARE button is putting their corporate goals of forcing us to use adobe's cloud storage servers over the actual usefulness of the program.  Please upvote to have Adobe switch the button back to dark gray, or remove it entirely.

Hi @jeremyp1470049 

It's a bug Adobe introduced while fixing other bugs, Adobe are renowned for this, fix some bugs and introduce other bugs at the same time, QA is not one of Adobe's strong points I'm afraid, in fact it's pretty non existent

We work in a neutral color managed environment. I have arranged my workspace to be virtually free of any color except for gray. Why is there a blue button on my UI that I can't get rid of?

You can revert to version 23.2.1 from the Creative Cloud app until Adobe fix the bug.
