Is it possible to remove the abilty to change views from a modern list?

I have a few views of a certain list and would like users to only be able to see the views to which they have a link. (I would set the default to a view which anyone could see with no issues)

I've done a fair amount of Googling but can't tell if this is possible or not (could view formatting do it?)

You can apply third-party CSS styles or SPFx to hide the “Switch view options” from modern list view, but it will affect all users accessing the list.

See the references below:

Reference third-party CSS styles in SharePoint Framework web parts.

Hide “See all ” link of list/document webPart in modern page.

  • Hmm this looks like it might be the right way, unfortunately I don't think I have the admin privaliges, nor the expertise to pull it off. Thanks anyway.
