How to Hide the Title column

Many people often ask me how to get rid of the SharePoint Title column in SharePoint list and associated forms; of course, we can always remove the Title columns from the list views, but the column will still show up in the forms.

An easy and elegant way to solve this is to create a custom content type; in the content type definition, go to Content Type definition :


Click on the Title column, and select the option “This column is Hidden (Will not appear in forms”).



You can now associate you content type to a SharePoint List, but you won’t see the Title column anymore.

Enjoy !
