How To Hide the SharePoint 2010 Web Part Checkbox

This morning I came across this post in the SharePoint 2010 forums. Although it’s nothing critical, it’s good to know the workaround!


How to hide the checkbox that is available for each Web Part in SharePoint 2010.

Resolution using CSS

Add the following CSS to your Master Page



display: none;


Resolution using OOTB available options

  • Display the Web Part without a title
  • Add a Content Editor Web Part right before the list Web Part, adding the title of the List Web Part to the Content Editor Web Part.
