I think that the image I attached says it all - a part of the screen is covered by admin menu in mobile view from my pc (this is the default firefox mobile view).

It's extremely problematic when I need to check something that is at the fold of the page, i.e at the top part of the page beacuse it also being covered and I have no where to scroll-up to, and must logout to view it or check through another browser and this can be tiresome sometimes.

  • If I'm not wrong your requirement is to hide the admin_menu only on the mobile view? – Rishi Kulshreshtha Mar 15 '15 at 5:06

There is no configuration settings at admin/config/administration/admin_menu for hiding the admin_menu at the mobile screen, hence you can do 2 things:

  1. Either inspect you site in incognito mode of Chrome or private browsing in Firefox
  2. Permanent solution would be applying CSS for this

    @media screen and (max-width: 640px) { #admin-menu { display: none; } }


You could also choose to change your backend to a responsive backend. I had good results with the adminimal theme and it's companion adminimal admin menu module. This resulted in a slick responsive backend on mobile devices.


You could add a Media query to your CSS that hides the menu < a certain width.

Or, you could just pop open a new private window in FF which would get around having to log out.
