This very simple extension hides the "Publish" button in the Visual Studio status bar. This is useful if you're using a different version control system or simply don't want to see this button. Now compatible with Visual Studio 2022!
VS2019 and older: Download the older release from GitHub
The Publish button in Visual Studio polutes the status bar if you don't use it, and can also cause accidental creation of a Git repository on the project location.
