How to remove or Extend New! Item tag for Sharepoint List Items

By Namwar Rizvi - Last updated: Sunday, September 7, 2008 - Save & Share - One Comment

Whenever you add a new item in any Sharepoint list “New!” item tag displays against that item for a time being. The time to display this tag depends on a property called “Days to Show New Icon”. The value of this property determines the number of days to display the New! tag against an item.

If you set this property to zero then newly added items will not have this tag. On the other hand if you want to display this tag to be displayed longer then usual then you can set its property in number of days as per your requirement.

Following is the step-by-step procedure to do that:

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt
  2. Type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each command:
    cd /d %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN
     stsadm.exe -o setproperty -pn days-to-show-new-icon -pv 0 -url [Your Virtual Server’s URL]

Is there a way to turn off the New icon once user has clicked on it?
