To remove a toolbox, right-click the toolbox and click Remove. The toolbox will be removed from the window contents but will not be deleted from disk. This is perhaps the most useful feature of the ArcToolbox window. You can customize the contents of the window to contain just those toolboxes you need for your current project.

The Catalog window displays the toolbox name. The ArcToolbox arcfoolbox displays the toolbox label. This may take you by surprise if you add a toolbox whose name is different than its label.


Learn more about toolbox name and label. The toolboxes you see in the ArcToolbox window are references to a toolbox. They are analogous to shortcuts in Windows Explorer or layers within ArcMap.

This means that if you remove a toolbox from the window, you’re simply removing it from the list and not truly deleting it on disk.

However, if you delete one of its tools, adctoolbox tool is deleted from the toolbox on disk. Tuforial this way, toolboxes in the window behave like feature layers in ArcMap—if you remove a feature layer in the ArcMap table of contents, the dataset it refers to is not deleted.

However, if you start editing the contents of the layer and delete a feature, the feature is deleted from the dataset on disk. It’s the same way with toolboxes in the window—if you delete one of its members a toolset or toolit is permanently deleted from the toolbox.

If you have only one application open on your computer, the contents of the Catalog and ArcToolbox windows are kept synchronized; if you remove a tool from a toolbox in the ArcToolbox widow, the Catalog window is immediately updated, showing that the tool was removed.

Likewise, if you delete a tool from a toolbox in the catalog tree, the ArcToolbox window is immediately updated. However, If you have multiple application sessions open, such as an ArcCatalog and an ArcMap session, the contents of a toolbox are not synchronized between the two application sessions. For example, if you delete a tool in one application session, it will still be present in the other application and can still be executed.

This occurs because all applications, when they are started, read the contents of all toolboxes and store the contents in memory.

As you delete, remove, or add tools, these changes are made in memory and are not written to disk until you exit the application session.

This means that you can always use a tool that was present when the session began, even if another application removed it. The general rule is that if you are altering toolbox content, alter it in one application, then exit and restart other applications to see the changes. Arc GIS for Desktop.
