I'm using QGIS 2.18 (Las Palmas).

I want to change the length of the decimal place, I tried the approach in How to change length to 2 decimal places? however, it still displays 13 decimal places.

    Which QGIS 2.18.x version are you using? In the Attribute Table, you could right-click your column name and select the Hide column option. For changing the length of the field, you could create a new real field from the Field Calculator and copy over the values from the old column using an expression like "original_column_name". Or use the Refactor fields tool from the Processing Toolbox.
