Step 3: Apply the CSS property to ID or Class of the above mentioned links.

Step 4: Open your SharePoint site in the Chrome browser and Right click on Recycle Bin Link Or All Site Content links and then select inspect element and then navigate to the parent UL of that links and get the class named as: s4-specialNavLinkList. If you don’t have Chrome or don’t know how to get the class of the above mentioned links, don’t worry you can use the following class: s4-specialNavLinkList it’s unique class to all the SharePoint 2010 site.

Step 5: Apply the CSS property to that class “s4-specialNavLinkList”. Find the bellow code

<style type="text/css">
        .s4-specialNavLinkList {
                                display: none;
                            }
    </style>

Step 6: Place the above CSS code before the end of head closing tag.
