When I open my list on SharePoint, it always opens in quick edit mode, how can I fix this?
It seems that your default view is created using datasheet mode, try to create a view using standard template and then set it as default view.
It will no longer open in quick edit mode.
The simplest and most effective way is to edit the script in Sharepoint Designer. Simply change the "Type" (see the attached picture) from "GRID" to "HTML" and save changes. Voila! your list will open in View mode.
You can switch off quick edit on advanced settings page of the list.
UDP: Or you can change the view style on view's editing page.
in your list default view is created using datasheet mode ,please create new view or you can use the existed view from library setting.
