    The latest version of 1.2.2 added several new columns in the admin post and page lists for things like SEO title, meta description and focus keyword. Can they be removed?

    On the upper right, click screen options. Then you can disable any columns you wish to remove.

    Thanks a lot for this info! There was so little space for the post titles remaining with all those other columns. Now I unchecked a few. Thanks again.

    Would be much better to get a option to hide the columns. I develop sites for clients and would rather not explain to each of them that they need to go to "Screen options" to hide those. The most recent release of the plugin is great other than it putting the SEO columns before the page/post/type title and adding 4 total columns.

    I came to this post because of the same issue. When this plugin is installed the Post menu changes. The solution works but it doesn't solve the issue. Just sayin. Thanks in advance.

    I just upgraded to WP 3.4 and have the current WP SEO. All was well with the columns until WP 3.4 -- when the action menu on mouse rollover display produces a vertical menu instead of a horizontal. So can I suggest the permanent removal of the extra 4 columns on the admin ALL POSTS page, if that's what is causing the vertical menu problem?

    In the meantime, exactly which columns are added? Thanks.

    These filters http://yoast.com/wordpress/seo/api-docs/#filters yoast has included might help you out.

    I see it is a bit annoying for some people, Im sure he'll make it more clear in future updates.

    In your functions.php the below code should get rid of those annoying (for some people) columns.

    add_filter( 'wpseo_use_page_analysis', '__return_false' );

    If you would like to remove the columns for all users without any coding you could use Codepress Admin Columns. You have the option to show/hide and reorder any column. Also works for the added columns of WordPress SEO by Yoast.

    @2046 Thanks for the heads up. Since the latest release of WordPress SEO, my admin columns plugin no longer controls it's columns. I will see what I can do to fix this.

    If you just want to remove the columns, I would suggest using the filter.

    If you want more control over them the use Codepress Admin Columns. It will again support all columns set by WordPress SEO. It will save your column settings across all users and you can set the columns for Pages and Posts(types) in one convenient place.
