To access the Admin Columns settings screen, simply navigate to your admin panel ( example.com/wp-admin/), and go to Settings » Admin Columns in the admin menu.

This leads you to the Admin Columns settings screen, where you have full control over the columns.

The settings screen is quite self-explanatory, but if you need more information, be sure to
