  • Hi Paru,

    We can use jQuery to achieve it. The following code for your reference, add the code into edit form page using SharePoint designer or add the code into a content editor web part in the edit form page.

    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function () {
            $("select[title='dropdown column name'] option:selected").next().attr("selected","selected")

    Best Regards,
