Gutter Icons

File | Settings | Editor | General | Gutter Icons for Windows and Linux
IntelliJ IDEA | Preferences | Editor | General | Gutter Icons for macOS


Use this page to hide or show the icons in the gutter area that invoke actions related to the basic, IntelliJ IDEA-wide features or to framework- and technology-specific features for all the newly created editors.

The right-hand pane shows all the gutter icons available in IntelliJ IDEA. The basic, IntelliJ IDEA-wide features, such as, /help/img/idea/2017.1/run.png (Run), are displayed at the top of the list under the Common title. Other features are grouped by the frameworks and technologies to which they are related , for example, Groovy, Spring Support, etc .

Note that a group of technology-related features is displayed only if the corresponding plugin is installed and activated, see Enabling and Disabling Plugins and Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins for details.

  • To have an icon displayed in the gutter area, find the icon or the corresponding action in the list and then select the check box next to it.
  • To have an icon hidden, clear the check box next to it.
