SharePoint 2010: Use # to remove Web Part Title URL

When you add a list or library web part through the SharePoint UI, the web part title is automatically hyperlinked to the SharePoint list or library. For example, in the screenshot below, I have a standard Team Site homepage with a Shared Documents web part. The title of the web part is linked to the Shared Documents Library.

If you edit the web part, under the “Advanced” group, you will see Title URL where you can change the hyperlink of the web part title heading to another URL location.

However, if you decide to remove this Title URL value and click OK. SharePoint won’t allow the update. It would instead automatically re-enter the original URL value. To quickly get around that, Edit the Web Part and replace the URL with #

Once you click OK, you should be all set.
