As a component with a cross-functional purpose independent of page content, none of its elements can be disabled. If a feature is not available, it must not be displayed.
The height of the Page header only depends on its configuration and can't be custom-tailored or modified.
The Page header is always displayed above the page content and can be optionally fixed or not while scrolling. In the second case, it can appear when users scroll back to the top of the page.
