SharePoint lists and libraries can show the data in different
ways in different views. The default view, created by SharePoint,
is called "All Items" in lists and "All Documents" in libraries.
It is a basic view , but you can create new views and use
filters, styles and grouping to arrange data in ways that
suit your organization.

except in the
OneDrive for Business default library. Each view is
a separate .aspx page that can be linked to, opened in a
new tab, customized and so on.

can create views in the modern interface also. Modern: Arrange the view as you want it and then
select 'Save view as' under the View selector. Classic: Click on the ellipsis and select 'Create
In both interfaces you can also open the library/list
settings and click on 'Create view'.

of the columns has a filter.
