Where did the View menu go in SharePoint 2010?


This is going to be a 2-part post…

1. The view menu is now in 2 different places.
2. Customized views will only display it in 1 place.

In SharePoint 2007, the View menu was right on the list toolbar as seen below.

In SharePoint 2010 it’s now in the ribbon:

But it’s also in the breadcrumb:

That is, unless you have a modified view page, in which case you only have it in the ribbon:

Modifying the view page (adding a web part to it, for example) takes away this functionality. The only way I’ve been able to get it back is to revert the view back to the “default” state.
