How to hide products and categories? 1. Select the category that you would like to hide in the box that says “Select a category” then click on Filter. 2. Select Edit in the box that says “Bulk actions” and then put a checkmark in the first box selecting all the products within these category. 3. From the Status box select Private Then click the blue Update button. Now all the products under that category are hidden from the public. To undo this repeat the above steps but this time select Public, not Private.
