Hiding the title Field in SharePoint the simple way

I find these two ways as the simplest:

Using the SharePoint Manager

Every SharePoint Admin should have the Sharepoint Manager. Just download it to you SharePoint Server and open it. No installation is needed.

Drill down to the list you want to modify. If you click on the list all fields are show. You will see 4 Title fields. Select the Title field with the Internal Name "Title". You can check the internal name in the properties window on the right if you click on a field.

Now change the values for "Hidden" to true and "Required" to false.

Using Powershell

I don't reinvent the wheel so look at "Phil Childs" site. There is a simple PowerShell script you can use to modify each field and of course also the title field.
