How to hide GenBases you do not use often

The GenBase List dialog can be configured to exclude GenBases (genealogical databases) you do not use often or do not want to be selected.

This could be the case when you want to exclude the demo GenBases.

How to exclude the demo GenBase

In this example you have two GenBases - Jones and FamTree. You only want to see them in the GenBase List dialog. You do not want to see the demo GenBases.
