Remove the ‘screen options’ and ‘Help’ from the WordPress admin section

Removing the ‘Screen options’ tab

You can remove the ‘screen options’ tab completely from your WordPress admin area by adding this to your theme’s function.php file

// Hide 'Screen Options' tab
function remove_screen_options_tab() {
    return false;
}
add_filter('screen_options_show_screen', 'remove_screen_options_tab');

Removing the ‘Help’ tab

You can also remove the ‘Help’ tab from the admin area in the same manner:

// Hide Help tab
function hide_help() {
    echo '<style type="text/css">
            #contextual-help-link-wrap { display: none !important; }
    </style>';
}
add_action('admin_head', 'hide_help');
