Open SharePoint List Items in Edit Mode by Default

Requirement: Open SharePoint Task list items in Edit form directly instead of "Display form".


  1. Go to your SharePoint task list, Click on Site settings gear, Choose "Edit page" 
  2. Add a script editor and place this code:

    jQuery to launch list items in Edit mode:
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
      //Change display form links to edit form links
      $('.ms-vb a[href*="listform.aspx"]').each(function(){
          var url = $(this).attr('href');
          url = url.replace("PageType=4", "PageType=6");
          $(this).attr('href', url);
  3. Save and close!
Now, on clicking any task item link, you'll be taken into Edit form directly.
