    Hi,

    I believe we can't remove that. But we can set a default selected option.

     

    Another is that we can set a text in the empty field option in your drop down field. Select the "Show Properties" of the Drop down field. Choose the "Empty Option Text", I added "Please select" in my end, that should make the drop down field more formal or professional.

     

    I hope that helps. Let us know if you need more information on this.

    Thank you.
