Note : The previous steps can be applied to a specific list,

If you need to apply it for all lists in a specific site, you should follow the mentioned steps below :

  • Make sure that you have a full control access on the site.
  • Create a CSS file with the above CSS.
  • Upload it to the Site Assets or Style library of the site,
  • Go to Site Settings > Master Page > Alternate CSS URL.

  • Check the third option > Click Browse and select the CSS file that has been uploaded earlier in the Site Assets library.

If you need to apply it for all lists in a Site collection, you should follow the above-mentioned steps but at the root site, you will also need to be a site collection administrator.
