linkToItem not opening document

When viewing my document library either from its page or within a web part, I would like the default Title column to be a link by default which will open the document (like the Name column).

I've tried adding linkToItem="TRUE" within the FieldRef tag but this opens the document's properties (DispForm.aspx) and not the document itself. Any help is appreciated! Thank you for your time.

According to your description, my understanding is that you want to open the document directly when clicking the Title column.

By default, if you set the field attribute with "LinkToItem=True", it will open the display form nor the document itself.

If you want to open the document directly, you can add the field "LinkToDocument" in the list view, the field will open the document nor open in the display form.
