JIRA: Can I edit "boards in this project" to exclude a board?

In JIRA at the top left there is either the ellipses or the drop-down for "boards in this project" that lists all boards/views related to the project.  

Two boards are now showing up in this list that are based upon filters but are otherwise, not directly related to the project.  I would like to exclude these boards from showing in the "boards in this project" list.

Can this be done?

I ignore "boards in this project" and use Add Link to add a link to boards we care about in Project Shortcuts has some steps to disable "boards in this project"

But it's not a "include stuff and then arbitrarily exclude stuff later", it's "get the selection right".  

Change the filter so that it does not include the projects you want to drop.  In some cases, probably including yours, the easiest way is to simply add "and project not in (abc, xyz)" to the filter.

Let's assume my board looks like this


[Project AA]

AA Board [v]

-- Board XX

-- Board ZZ


I own project AA and use the "AA Board".

Some other user created "Board XX" and "Board ZZ" and their filter includes an issue from my project AA, which apparently causes them to show up on my Project Board.
I am not interested in either board and I also cannot modify their filters to ensure they won't include an issue from project AA.

The title "Boards in this project" in the switcher seems to be backwards. Instead, what it appears to show are "Boards that include issues from this project". 

How can I prevent that my own board / project view gets cluttered with other people's (non project members') boards?

I'd like to know the answer to this scenario as well as our firm is facing the exact same issue. It would be ideal to allow a decluttering of the "Boards in this project" switcher as many individuals are likely to build their own private boards which include multiple Jira projects as our teams are highly collaborative in nature.
