Is there a way to hide the menu item that plugins add to the control panel menu? As seen in the picture below, I do not need the "DashCols" link in my main menu, but would like to keep the plugin installed. enter image description here

I just added a setting called "Undercover mode" to DashCols. In Undercover mode, DashCols will keep running, though the plugin's CP section will be inaccessible/hidden, and layout editing will be disabled for all users – including those having access to the plugin via permission settings.

Download v. 1.1.4 from GitHub

If you're looking for a more robust and easy-to-use solution, have a look at the CPNav plugin, which allows you to re-order, rename and hide menu items.

Option 1) Contact the plugin developer and ask them to make it an optional setting.

Option 2) Use a plugin like this to hide it via CSS.

Option 3) Plugins with a CP panel have a permission in the user group permission settings under 'allow cp access' to allow access to the plugin's cp page. You could turn this off for your user group.
