Because this app will override default Recent tab with a list view, we can configure to hide New button when user click object tab.
If you are not aware, there is a list view called Recently Viewed Object, so if your users prefer to get recent records they work with as in default tab, you can set the Id to Recently Viewed Object Id.
Limitation, this app only work with 7 standards object as below, so if you would to use for custom object tab, this is not the option:
- Override (7) standard object tabs with a default list view home page
- Remove the "New" button from each tab and increase data accuracy
- Set default tab list views for specific profiles or individual users
Here is the configuration guide Welcome to Standard Tab Overrides
