How do I hide completed courses from my dashboard? I clicked the star and they were hidden. After the date the course was scheduled to end, they all reappeared. The star is still white but all classes reappeared on my dashboard.

Hi there, @ChrisAke ...

Do any of your courses listed on your "Course" >> "All Courses" screen have a yellow star next to them?  Or are the stars all white?  According to this Guide, How do I customize my Courses list as a student? - Instructure Community (canvaslms.com), if you don't have any stars that are yellow, then up to 20 courses will show automatically on your Canvas Dashboard...which might explain why they re-appeared in your view.  As soon as you star (turn yellow) one course on your "All Courses" screen, then that course (or those courses) will only show up on your Canvas Dashboard.

Does this help to answer your question?

Yes, this does help. I also learned that I must keep one open active course or all 20 or so former courses reappear on the dashboard. Thanks so much for your help

Thanks for posting the fact about the need to have one active course showing.  I have never completely removed all of my courses from my dashboard view, so I never knew about the possibility you mentioned.  That comment very well may help others that read this thread.
