    Going nuts.

    Dashboard > Screen Options > Show on screen:
    I uncheck the box but the selection keeps coming back.

    are you trying to remove one of the default metaboxes or one added by a plug in? Or does this happen if you try to remove any metabox from display?

    Hi Cubecolour,
    Thanks for your reply. Sorry I thought the problem was pretty obvious.

    Within your Dashboard you have all these options:
    Your browser is out of Date!
    Right Now
    Recent Comments
    Incoming Links
    Recent Drafts
    Wordpress Blog
    Other WordPress News
    plus a few others.

    All the above listed is preceded with a check box. I uncheck it, but it just comes back as checked.

    I've tried to toss my cookies (clear browser data). I'm using Chromium not Chrome.

    I can move a box from one column to another.

    But I can't get rid of the stuff I really don't need nor want. I've spent so much time on this I'm just going to "accept" it :)

    I would test using a different browser to rule that out - and if possible also on a different computer.
    I would also test after deactivating all WordPress plugins to investigate whether there is one causing this.

    Yes, I'll try different browsers first than move on to deactivating plugins.

    Thank you. I appreciate your suggestions. My fingers are crossed :)

    I have this issue with 3.2.1 as well. I have tried multiple browsers and deactivated all plugins. When I uncheck the various dashboard options, they do not hide the widgets on the dashboard page.

    I have something similar and cannot find a solution.

    When 'pages' is selected from the dashboard I have somehow lost the page description and keywords columns and cannot find any method to recover them.

    When I click 'screen options' all I get is what is already shown 'title' 'author' and 'date'. No other options are available.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.
