To remove/customize it from the Richtext editor, I would recommend creating a custom rich text editor to customize as per your need and as a best practice to reduce complexity and challenges during a future upgrade.

To do this you need to switch to the Core Database – at the bottom right in the Desktop view is a little grey icon: click that and choose Core from the popup.

Goto this path and find predefined editor profiles /sitecore/system/Settings/Html Editor Profiles

For you its (Rich Text Default) /sitecore/system/Settings/Html Editor Profiles/Rich Text Default

enter image description here

Right-click the folder and select the duplicate option from the context menu. Provide meaning full name like Custom Rich Text Default and hit Ok.

Expand Toolbar 1 item (/sitecore/system/Settings/Html Editor Profiles/Custom Rich Text Default/Toolbar 1) and delete (/sitecore/system/Settings/Html Editor Profiles/Custom Rich Text Default/Toolbar 1/Insert Sitecore Media) item.

enter image description here

Save and switch to master dataset and change the source filed path for the template you want to use newly created custom richtext editor (/sitecore/system/Settings/Html Editor Profiles/Custom Rich Text Default)

enter image description here

Validate with Richtext editor.

Hope it helps!


you can create a custom rich text profile by duplicating the default rich text profile at path

/sitecore/system/Settings/Html Editor Profiles/Rich Text Default

and set a desired name.l e.g., Custom Rich Text

under the custom rich text delete the following item

/sitecore/system/Settings/Html Editor Profiles/Custom Rich Text/WebEdit Buttons/Insert Image

Go to the template when you want to use this rich text and set the Source with Custom Tich Text profile path

Hope this helps!
