I created a custom list in sharepoint.  By default this list includes a column for Title and Attachments. If I go to edit view and deselect these two fields, I get the following error:

The security validation for this page is invalid. Click Back in your Web browser, refresh the page, and try your operation again.

How can I remove these from the list?  I do not need a title or attachment field.

    Accepted Solution

    You need at least a Title like field , the Title field is required by default , you can add another field or rename the Title to anything else.

    But regarding the attachments you can enable / disable attachments at the list settings, under advanced.

    Also you can remove the Tiitle (or replacement ) from views as needed.

    Best of luck.
