How can I re-size quick launch on SharePoint 2010 & How can I hide Site Content!

1) How can I re-size quick launch on Sharepoint 2010?

I have enabled tree view for the document library which need more room on the quick launch to get the full view for the users!

2) How can I hide certain heading like Site Content from the Sharepoint?

3) Main page loading takes time for the first time (1 min)! How can I fine tune?

Thanks

Hi,
hm, three questions in one.
1. Quick launch
Just add the following style information to your master page:
BODY #s4-leftpanel {
 WIDTH: 300px; FLOAT: left
}
.s4-ca {
MARGIN-LEFT: 300px;
}

Open in new window


2. Hide bottom special links
Simplest way to hide Receycle Bin and Site content using this style:
.s4-specialNavLinkList {
display: none;
}

Open in new window


If you want to hide specific links, then you have to use e.g. jQuery to get the element with the id ending with e.g. "_idNavLinkViewAllV4".
3. Load time
This is normally depending on the number and types of web parts you have on your home page.
For this part of the question (and also for the future) I would kindly ask you to create a separate question (for each of your inquiries - just to ensure that (and to respect and honor the experts work)).

Thanks and HTH

Hi,
that depends a little bit on your environment, software development processes and operational processes. If you have no dev or test environment but just a small SharePoint farm, then you can use SharePoint designer to add the style to the master page (in the head section).
Normally (no upgraded SharePoint farm) its the v4.master.

Otherwise (having SharePoint server) you can create a custom style sheet file and create a SharePoint solution with one feature with a custom master page (copy of v4.master) and the style sheet, which will during feature activation set the new custom master page as default master page.

Which SharePoint version and edition do you use?

For the last, hm thats really strange. You will have to use additional tools to track down what files/content is loaded and to see the requests/responses - like Fiddler or Firefox with Firebug add-on.
