How do I remove "--None--" from a dependent picklist field?

Knowledge Article Number 000221030
Description I have a picklist field that only has one value assigned to it (through field dependency).  How do I auto-fill it?  It currently defaults to "--None--" and we have to select the value manually.
Resolution There is an idea for the topic in the IdeaExchange website here.

As a workaround to default a picklist field to a specific value, when only one value exists or only one value is available through a field dependency, we have to make the field required on the page layout.

To make a field required on the page layout, please follow the steps below:
  1. Navigate to the page layout of your object
  2. Edit the desired page layout - More on Editing Page Layouts for Standard Objects or for Custom Objects
  3. Click on the wrench icon related to the picklist field
  4. Set as Required
  5. Save it
