Except unchecking the Headings under the View tab one by one, the following VBA code can help you to hide them in all sheets at once.

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.

VBA code: Hide row and column headings in all worksheets:

Sub hideheadings()
'Updateby Extendoffie 20161206
    Dim wsSheet As Worksheet
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For Each wsSheet In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
        If Not wsSheet.Name = "Blank" Then
            wsSheet.Activate
            With ActiveWindow
                .DisplayHeadings = False
                .DisplayWorkbookTabs = True
                .DisplayHorizontalScrollBar = False
            End With
        End If
    Next wsSheet
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

3. Then press F5 key to run this code, and the row and column headings in all worksheets of the active workbook have been hidden at once. See screenshot:
