This is a follow-up to #39074.

Wondering if there is a filter that can be added to functions.php to disable the new order buttons on the meta boxes?

Just noting this is a follow up to a support thread.

I personally am not in favor of allowing these to be filtered because they are there for accessibility purposes. I also personally like them.

We could maybe explore adding a user setting. But I think that is overkill.

Hello and thank for opening this ticket on WordPress Core Trac,

This ticket was discussed during today's Accessibility team meeting and it is not a change recommended by the accessibility team. If plugin authors want to remove those UI elements, they can override WordPress Core stylesheets, but accessibility elements are not going to be optional for now.

Thank you for asking, and for your understanding.
