You can add this PHP code to functions.php in your theme.

function modify_read_more_link() {
    return '';
add_filter( 'the_content_more_link', 'modify_read_more_link' );

This will remove all read more buttons in your theme. But if you just want to show complete articles without excerpt this you can achieve by customizing WP Settings. See image below. enter image description here

    That setting is just for RSS feeds. How the posts display on the front-end is determined by the theme. – Jacob Peattie Mar 21 '18 at 14:05

Check also that wherever you want the (full) content displayed the template is using the_content(); NOT the_excerpt();

I went to Appearance - Customize - "Whatever Theme " Theme Options - Blog Section Options - here i selected the "content" option instead of "excerpt" from the Show content form tab
