Remove Toolbar Buttons

You can either remove toolbar buttons programmatically or using the ToolsFile.xml file:

Programmatically:

The second way to remove toolbar buttons is by using the provided RadEditor's Server-Side API and the Remove method of the Tools collection. You can hide the desired button with the following RemoveButton function:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (!IsPostBack)
    {
        RadEditor1.EnsureToolsFileLoaded();
        RemoveButton("FindAndReplace");
        RemoveButton("Cut");
        RemoveButton("Copy");
        RemoveButton("Paste");
    }
}
public void RemoveButton(string name)
{
    foreach (Telerik.Web.UI.EditorToolGroup group in RadEditor1.Tools)
    {
        EditorTool tool = group.FindTool(name);
        if (tool != null)
        {
            group.Tools.Remove(tool);
        }
    }
}           
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    If Not IsPostBack Then
        EnsureToolsFileLoaded()
        RemoveButton("FindAndReplace")
        RemoveButton("Cut")
        RemoveButton("Copy")
        RemoveButton("Paste")
    End If
End Sub
Public Sub RemoveButton(ByVal name As String)
    For Each group As Telerik.Web.UI.EditorToolGroup In RadEditor1.Tools
        Dim tool As EditorTool = group.FindTool(name)
        If tool <> Nothing Then
            group.Tools.Remove(tool)
        End If
    Next
End Sub

You can see list the available tools in RadEditor by using the autocomplete feature of the Name EditorTool inner tag attribute (to show the dropdown use Ctrl+Space):

Using the ToolsFile.xml:

To remove a toolbar button from a toolbar, just open the ToolsFile.xml and delete its tag. For example, to remove the Cut, Copy and Paste buttons delete the respective tool tags below and save the ToolsFile.xml after that:

<root>
   <tools name="MainToolbar" dockable="true" dockingZone="Top" enabled="true">
      <tool name="Cut" />  
      <tool name="Copy" />
      <tool name="Paste" />
      <tool name="PasteFromWord" />
      <tool name="PastePlainText" />
      <tool name="PasteAsHtml"  />
   </tools>
<root>
