  • Hi Nelish,

     

    If you don’t want user to see “Edit Page”, you need to remove the Add and Customize Pages permission from user. But after this, user can only edit the Appearance and Layout of web parts.

     

    Thanks.

  • If the web part is showing content from a document library or other list, the required permissions would be to the document library or list that the web part is pointing.

    hope this helps,

  • Hi Nilesh,

    Sorry for late response. I can't provide you a screen shot cause i' m out of my office.

    You can find this permission when you edit permission level. Please check this:
