You can't completely remove any of the pagelets, as they're an integral part of the myHumboldt system. What you can do is to hide the ones you don't use. Most of the pagelets have an upside-down black triangle to the right of the header - by clicking on this, you can minimize the pagelet so that only the header shows, not the contents. You can also place your cursor over the header and drag the pagelet to a different location on the tab. Certain pagelets cannot be minimized - those are the ones used to display information that's important for you to see. Once you've configured the screen the way you want, it will stay that way until you decide to make changes.
