ArcGIS Pro 2.5: How to show the physical field name but not the “alias” name while working with geoprocessing tools?
For example, in the screenshot below, two fields names appear identical as the “alias” name is shown instead of physical name.
How to show the physical names within the tool?

Hi Jamal NUMAN,
In general it is not a good idea to give two different columns the same alias. So the quickest solution would be to modify one of the two aliases.
Alternatively you could choose to keep Field Name and Alias identical, just to avoid the confusion which is so often caused by the use of aliases.
That "_1" on the field names seems to indicate that the table is the result of a join. That is how the software deals with duplicate names that may arise with the join process.
If it bothers you, you can use
to rename the duplicates with the caveat that not all field names can be renamed
Many thanks guys for the input.
All what I wanted here is to be able to toggle between physical\alias names while working with geoprocessing tools. That would be sufficient to resolve the issue without the need to apply any sort of field renaming
