A little grey vertical menu bar appeared on the modern page today, it has a house which goes to the tenant home page, and a globe which goes to "My site", a page which goes to "My files", another icon that says "My news"

How can I get rid of that menu bar?

    @Yiru Chen ,

    This is the new feature called SharePoint app bar that is designed to improve the global way finding experience while dynamically displaying personalized sites, news, and files.


    Currently, we could use powershell to temporarily disable the SharePoint app bar before October 31, 2021.

    Temporarily disable the SharePoint app bar:

    1. Download the latest version of SharePoint Online Management Shell.
    2. Run the following command exactly as it appears:
      Set-SPOTemporarilyDisableAppBar $true

    Note: It can take up to an hour for the app bar to be removed on a tenant where the app bar is already showing up.
