This plugin does exactly what the title says, when activated it will remove the Tools menu from your WordPress Admin navigation menu. If you need import, export, the old press-this bookmarklet, or if any of your plugins add items into it, simply deactivate the plugin, do your thing, then re-enable the Remove Tools Menu plugin to remove Tools again and keep it out of your way. NOTE: there are certain plugins that add things to the Tools menu… those obviously won’t show up either but the plugin still does what it was built to do. Have fun.
