Option to Remove Interpreter in Status Bar


PyCharm 2018.3 added an interpreter selector in the status bar. Although I can see the usefulness of it, it's not for me. The problem is that I've been using PyCharm for years. So, when I want to switch branches in GIT, my muscle memory brings the pointer down to the lower-right of the screen where the GIT menu used to be and I wind up switching the interpreter instead.

Is there an option to turn this off or maybe even move it? If not, could it be entered as a feature request?



There is no option to disable or move it, unfortunately.

I am wondering why would one use a mouse instead of keyboard shortcuts? E.g. Find Action or Search Everywhere are quite handy.


@troywhoffman have you opened a ticket? I have exact same issue. It really annoys me that I can't move it.

PyCharm is a great tool and I believe it makes sense to allow to customise the status bar.



Hi Baris

I couldn't find such request. Feel free to submit one, we'll mark them as duplicate if needed.

Also, I know I can bring up the branches menu with a keyboard shortcut, but the project I'm working on has a large number of branches. It's faster to use the mouse when switching branches.
