How to use Hide on Screen

You can hide items from the list table that you do not want your users to see.

The result is you have a list table that is better suited for its task. If you do not need search, inline edit, bulk edit, or certain filters, you can now simply hide it from your users. Create a better user experience when visiting the list table by  hiding the functionality you do not need.

In this example we have hidden every element. The result is a very minimalistic list table. Ofcourse, you can pick and choose to hide your own elements.
