I'd like to see fewer fields in my Metadata display, and I've Googled this info:
Lightroom Classic now has a Customize button at the bottom of the Metadata panel. Click the Customize button to select the specific metadata fields that you want to display in the Metadata panel. Use the drop-down to select specific fields from the given menu.
But, there's no Customize button at the bottom of the panel. My LR version is 13.0.1 and I'm in the Library module.
Any ideas?

You need to be using the "Default" metadata option, the "Customise" button is only available in that mode.
Also, you can easily create your own lists of fields - see this article.
