Drupal 8 has removed the ability to disable modules for many reasons. See #1199946: Disabled modules are broken beyond repair so the "disable" functionality needs to be removed and many other issues in the queue of various core and contributed modules.

This module brings back the ability to (temporarily) disable modules from the UI. Note, that there's no guarantee for your data: it might get lost after you disable a module and perform other operations.

There is a possibility that core will include this feature one day again, see #2081873: Re-implement module disabling in a temporary/debugging capacity that is environment aware and explicit about risks to data integrity.
