I should have found this years ago.

Like most of you reading this I get bugged by vCenter presuming this is my first Rodeo, as they say.

Everytime you go to a new Datacentre/Cluster/Folder/VM* (Delete as appropriate) it gives me the Getting Started pages.

So today I found the off switches:

For C# Client

  • Select Edit > Client Settings
  • Select the General tab
  • Deselect the Show Getting Started Tabs check box and click OK
  • For the Web Client

  • Go to https://hostname:9443/vsphere-client
  • Click the Help dropdown in the top right
  • Select Hide All Getting Started Pages
  • Job done. You are now L33t @ vCenter
