In my Site Assets page I have a list of documents.


I wish the keep everything there visible except for one item. I do not want to delete it, I just want to hide it with the ability to unhide it in the future.

How do I hide just one item in the site assets?

Please note I need to do this in the web interface, not in Designer.

Please help.


  • Why not break the permissions on the item and take away read access? – OneOfThePetes Apr 20 '17 at 22:54

One simple solution is to update the default view of the Site Assets library and filter out the item that you do not want to see.


  • Modify the All Documents view.
  • Scroll down to the Filter section on the Edit View webpage.
  • Add the following filter:
    • Name
    • is not equal to
    • add_the_name_of_the_file_here
  • Click OK to save the view with the filter.


Another solution is to remove all permissions from the item, although site collection administrators will still see it.

  • How do I get to "All Documents view"? – Zolt Apr 21 '17 at 18:13
  • The Site Asests library should have a default view called "All Documents". Every time you open the library, you look at that library view. Look at this image: dmcinfo.com/Portals/0/Blog%20Pictures/SharePoint2013_02.png . The image displays the All Documents view, and also other 2 views which you do not have. If you click the Ellipsis (3 dots) button, then click "Modify View", you can follow the steps I posted above. – Mihail-Florin Popa Apr 22 '17 at 8:54
