  2. Then tap or click the spotlight item you want to delete;
  3. Then tap or click Delete Spotlight;
  4. Finally tap or click OK on the pop-up warning.


Rather than deleting a spotlight item you could just hide it. This is handy if you only need to stop showing a spotlight item temporarily and will save you having to create the item again in the future. Simply change the Spotlight display enabled switch to the off position, when your ready to show it again just change it back to the on position.
