Welcome to SolidWorks forums Mary.
While you're in the same mode again i.e. in edit component mode, then right click on the toolbar and select customize from the dropdown list. OR Tools > Customize OR Option icons > Customize Now drag drop the icon you don't need on the graphics area. Click OK on the customize window and they'll be gone
