  • This doesnot work with Drupal 8.2. To achieve this you have to do this:

    1. Log in as admin and go to structure → block layout
    2. Under the Header section configure Site Branding
    3. Under Toggle branding elements remove check marks from site logo/name/slogan etc as you wish.
    4. Save settings.
