How can I hide multiple columns in PBI Desktop

How can I hide multiple columns in PBI Desktop whcih are not required to de displayed in the Report tab.

I see that there is an option to do this one column at a time, Can we do this faster than this ?

Frequent Visitor

Open the relationship view, click on the first column you want to hide and then use ARROW UP/DOWN together with SHIFT for multi select. Once all relevant columns are selected, press the MENU-key (between ALT and CTRL or use SHFIT+F10) and then select "Hide in report view".

In addition to this option, the following solution worked for my tables.


  1. Go to Relationship View
  2. Select the table in which the columns needs to be hidden
  3. In "Fields Pane", Select the columns to be hidden while pressing down "CTRL + SHFIT" Keys.
  4. Once all the columns are selected then right click and click on "Hide in Report View"


Hope this helps.

hi, @Anonymous

It is not supported for now and for your requirement, you could post your new idea in Power BI ideas and make this feature coming sooner.

I don't believe that multi-select is supported.
