By default, there are following items on the left menu of Account page:


  1. Account Dashboard
  2. Account Information
  3. Address Book
  4. My Orders
  5. Billing Agreements
  6. Recurring Profiles
  7. My Product Reviews
  8. My Tags
  9. My Wishlist
  10. My Downloadable Products
  11. Newsletter Subscriptions

          <path>oauth/customer_token</path>
          <label>My Applications</label>
      </action>
   </reference>
</customer_account>




Useful Tip: If some functions aren’t used at all in your website, more than hiding only a menu item, it’s better to directly disable this function. As example if you’re sure that the function Tag will not be used, you could disalbe it going on System -> Configuration -> Advanced and disabling the Mage_Tag module.

Hi Dhaya Ian,

Thanks for the comment.

To remove link of "My Applications", go to:

app/design/frontend/[YOUR PACKAGE]/[YOUR THEME]/layout/oauth.xml

and find block of code like below:

<customer_account>
<reference name="customer_account_navigation">
<action method="addLink" translate="label" module="oauth">
<name>OAuth Customer Tokens</name>
<path>oauth/customer_token</path>
<label>My Applications</label>
</action>
</reference>
</customer_account>

Just comment out or remove this code.

This will remove "My Applications" link from Customer Account left section.

In order to remove any links like Top Links, Footer Links, My Account Links etc via admin interface, I would recommend the following free extension which just works out of the box:

Happy E-Commerce!
