[MacOS] Hiding the extra APFS volumes?


Recommended Posts

Since I've been messing around with my newer Triple MacOS boot (all APFS volumes), I've been annoyed with this one lingering thing that I'm not sure if/how to do. When in Catalina/Big Sur, I can see the multiple "Update" volumes that appear to be system used, but they take space on my desktop and Finder. Now I "think" I can simply pull them off the Finder window, but I'm hesitant to mess with the icons on the desktop because those ARE the volumes (unlike Windows where they're just shortcuts). I've run across a command line or two that supposedly hide them, but I'm seeing conflicting answers that mostly point out there is an issue with Mojave and up (IE: All of my volumes). Anyone deal with this level of pickiness with a confirmed, safe method?
