Final Fantasy XIV is not a small game by any means, and because it’s an MMO, it has a lot of options that you can mess with to get your desired Heads Up Display/User Interface. Want to add additional Hotbars for all your spells and abilities? Easy. Want to change the size of the enemy health bar or any other piece of the HuD/UI, then you can do that too. Plus much more.

FFXIV Remove UI Guide
All this is incredibly handy when it comes to playing the game how you want to play. Some people like their display cluttered and filled to the brim with information. But others want theirs to be as minimal as possible. And to be fair, we can’t blame them because the world of Final Fantasy XIV is a beautiful place.
However, there is a way to have both of these to be turned on and off at a click of a button. To remove the HuD/UI altogether, the default button on the PC version is ‘Scroll Lock.’ If you have a laptop, you need to hit Fn as well as Scroll Lock.
This is where the beauty of PC gaming comes into play; you can change this button to whatever you want it to be. Well, more or less, as you don’t want it to clash with something else important. So if you’re an avid picture taker, this can be moved to say your middle mouse button.
For those of you who play on the PlayStation 4, it’s once again simple to remove the HuD/UI; however, you cannot change this like on the PC version. All you need to do is press L1 + the touchpad button at the same time. And that’s it the HuD/UI is gone, and press the share button to take screenshots till your heart’s content.
