Where in the theme or wp files do you place this?

Typically code snippets are added to your theme's functions.php file.

If you're not familiar with using code snippets, these articles have wonderful advice:

I've been trying to figure this out for the last few days, as simply unchecking the screen option doesn't work.

Thank you for sharing! Solved the issue immediately.

This works as expected! Can you also help with hiding the dropdowns filters that Yoast SEO ads above the table?

@amboutwe Thanks for your reply, It want it to hide in other user's dashboard excluding the Administrator. If I disabled it from the option which you suggested, I think it will disable to "Cornerstone content" from Admin Dashboard Also.

@dronainfotech The cornerstone feature is not filterable by user role. A feature request was recently closed due to the extremely few users requesting the ability to hide cornerstone content by user role.

If you have custom post types, you can add additional lines for each post types. Replace {$post_type} with the name of the custom post type.

add_filter( 'manage_edit-{$post_type}_columns', 'yoast_seo_admin_remove_columns', 10, 1 );

@amboutwe Hello! I use Yoast Seo and Formidable form plugins. After activation Yoast SEO plugin I've got issue with correct display Formidable views in admin WP (http://domain.com/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=frm_display). Could you please help, how can I disable all Yost Seo elements from this page?
Thanks.

frm_display would be the post type for the Formidable content so removing the columns would use: manage_edit-frm_display_columns

@amboutwe Thank you for quick answer. I added this code, but issue is keeping
`add_filter( 'manage_edit-frm_display_columns', 'yoast_seo_admin_remove_columns', 10, 1 );
add_filter( 'manage_edit-page_columns', 'yoast_seo_admin_remove_columns', 10, 1 );

function yoast_seo_admin_remove_columns( $columns ) {
unset($columns['wpseo-score']);
unset($columns['wpseo-score-readability']);
unset($columns['wpseo-title']);
unset($columns['wpseo-metadesc']);
unset($columns['wpseo-focuskw']);
unset($columns['wpseo-links']);
unset($columns['wpseo-linked']);
return $columns;
}`
All colums in the page " wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=frm_display" have an offset table structure.
