I have scoured the internet looking for a solution of removing the title word New Products that exists just above the grid from the Magento 2 new products content widget.

Not sure how to accomplish this. I've seen lots of information about changing xml templates but i'm not skilled enough in Magento to understand what they are saying.

You need to override vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/frontend/templates/product/widget/new/content/new_grid.phtml in your custom theme at app/design/frontend/Vendor/theme/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/widget/new/content/new_grid.phtml and remove the title block/div present on line number 35.

<div class="block-title">
   strong role="heading" aria-level="2"><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ $title ?></strong>

override items.phtml file from


to your theme


Now, For title change you can replace New Products with your title in case 'new': like $title = __('Your Title');

case 'new':
    if ($exist = $block->getProductCollection()) {
        $type = 'new';
        $mode = 'grid';
        $type = $type . ' ' . $mode;

        $class = 'widget' . ' ' . $type;

        $image = 'new_products_content_widget_grid';
        $title = __('New Products'); //Change this to the title you want
        $items = $exist;

        $showAddTo = true;
        $showCart = true;
        $templateType = \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ReviewRendererInterface::SHORT_VIEW;
        $description = ($mode == 'list') ? true : false;
        $canItemsAddToCart = false;

and to remove it, just wrap lines 165 to 167 in if condition same as below,

<?php if($type != 'new'):?>
    <div class="block-title title">
        <strong id="block-<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $class?>-heading" role="heading" aria-level="2"><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $title; ?></strong>
<?php endif; ?>
