Ubuntu defaults to quite a selection of items on the favorites bar. These make sense if you are using this as a primary operating system. In the case of how we intend to use this, most of these do not make sense. It is suggested to remove all but the bare essential items. This allows for more room at various resolutions for icons we care about, such as terminal sessions, GTKTerm, Vitis, etc.
First, right click an item on the favorites bar, then left click on “Remove From Favorites”
