    Hello Kareem,

    If you don't use homegroup, then you could stop and disable the two services below and restart the PC to remove homegroup from the navigation pane. This will completely disable homegroup.

    Services - Start, Stop, and Disable in Windows 8


    • HomeGroup Listener
    • HomeGroup Provider



    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
