Not always we require to show changes done by other which is a mandatory feature in SharePoint online. 

What is details pane (aka. Information Pane)?

Detail pane/ Information shows information regarding the document if you selected a one or its showing recent changes within a list or library.

Good news:

We could write a SharePoint framework extension to hack styles until Microsoft give us a permanent solution.


I found this sample project (Inject CSS into modern SharePoint pages with React) which could reuse to our purpose. Thanks to Hugo for saving my time. 

Steps to awesomeness: 

  1. Clone the project
  2. Resolve dependencies > npm i
  3. Bundle > gulp bundle --ship
  4. Package > gulp package-solution --ship
  5. Upload package into SharePoint App catalog and deploy. You could find package under SharePoint folder.
  6. Add app into SharePoint page
  7. Create CSS file called custom.css in "Style Library" of root site (ie. /Style%20Library/custom.css)
  8. Content of the file will be as below:

display: none;
