Hide Title column in list in SharePoint 2010

Unlike SharePoint’s predefined lists, your custom list has only one column when you first create it — the Title column. Unfortunately, you can’t delete the Title column or change its data type, but you can rename or hide it.

Here are the complete details as how to hide the title column from the list. 

Please check and let me know in case of any queries/questions so that we can discuss and proceed further, Thank you.

-It’s actually a two-step resolution-

First step: Removing from the view
1.    Open the list
2.    List settings
3.    Views Section
4.    Click on ALLITEMS view
5.    Uncheck the title column
6.    Click OK

Second Step: Actual Hiding
1.    Open the list
2.    List settings
3.    Advanced settings
4.    Check the ‘allow management of content types’ option to Yes.
5.    Click OK
6.    Now refer to ‘item’ which is present under the content type section
7.    Click on the item content type
8.    Click on ‘Item’ under the columns
9.    Here you will get the option to hide it completely
