Step 1: it's Very Easy you need to Override the Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid as per magento Standrads.


You can Copy app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Sales/Order/Grid.php to app/code/local/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Sales/Order/Grid.php

Step 2:Now you need to open that file and search _prepareColumns() method.

Step 3: In that function Search Below Code.

 if (Mage::getSingleton('admin/session')->isAllowed('sales/order/actions/view')) {
                'header'    => Mage::helper('sales')->__('Action'),
                'width'     => '50px',
                'type'      => 'action',
                'getter'     => 'getId',
                'actions'   => array(
                        'caption' => Mage::helper('sales')->__('View'),
                        'url'     => array('base'=>'*/sales_order/view'),
                        'field'   => 'order_id'
                'filter'    => false,
                'sortable'  => false,
                'index'     => 'stores',
                'is_system' => true,

Step 4: Comment that code & Check your sales Order Grid.

let me know if you have any Query.

Rewrite class:

class Vendor_Module_Block_Rewrite_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid extends Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid
    protected function _prepareColumns()

        return $this->removeColumn('action');
