I would like to remove most of the stuff that comes "out of the box" with the steam overlay. Specifically the Friends, Achievements, Guides, Screenshots, Community Hub and Discussions boxes.

I know I can take away the whole overlay by clicking Shift + Tab. But isn't it possible to just have the friends list?

Install the new Steam Beta, the new Overlay is really toned down, and has all of that stuff just on the sidebar.

While it still doesn't allow you to remove them, I think you will enjoy it
