After the latest update of WordPress version 5.9, I saw that there was a svg files added at the bottom of the page.

Can you please tell me, how to remove this?

What's the use of it?

    This is not a WP5.9 issue. Looking at two other sites that are updated to 5.9, no SVG is present in the footer. Likely, your theme, a plugin or some other code specific to your site is adding those SVGs.

I've got the answer. Create a new file in the root of your theme with the name theme.json

Add and save the following code into it:

    "version": 1,
    "settings": {
        "color": {
            "duotone": null

  • You should be able to accept it as an answer now. I think there's just a two-day timeout for accepting your own answers, which is now passed.
