Collapse or Expand The Admin Menu By Default!

This plug-in creates a switch to collapse your admin sidebar by default, enabling more screen workspace when using your laptop or tablet, with an added bonus of a bespoke colors palette for your admin top bar, text, and drop-down menus.


Admin Menu Settings has been developed for tablet and laptop users who regulary use the admin area of their Word Press website but find there is not really enough screen space to work with comfortably. With this lightweight plug-in, you can simply set your work environment to have the admin side bar collapsed or expanded by default by means of a simple switch.

Once collapsed, you can continue to work using the admin icons and enjoy the extra work space. If you move onto a desktop which has a larger screen, simply switch the admin sidebar back to expanded by default. This plug-in will save you time collapsing and expanding the admin menu as you work.

As a bonus, we have included with the plug-in, some colour palette switches that enable the you to create your own colour styles to match your project for the Top Bar Background, Text, Icons and, the drop down menu background and it’s text.

PRO VERSION – Coming Soon.

We will shortly release a PRO version for collaborators of Word-Press websites whereby, each logged in user’s admin menu settings are stored with their profile. This will mean that different users of the admin area will enjoy their own admin menu settings while logged in. Any other user’s choice of settings will then be set to their own preference via their profile. Please leave a comment if you think this may be of use to you and your projects, any requested features or input will be most welcomed.

Major features of this plug-in include:

  • Provides a simple switch to collapse by default or expand by default the admin side bar.
  • Provides a simple bespoke colour pallet to enhance your admin Top Bar to match your feelings or project.
  • The menu settings can be found in the admin/tools menu.
