Navigating a SharePoint site may become quite an issue for users at times especially if there is not much of assistance available. For example, the default sidebar in SharePoint 2013 may not prove helpful for users in navigating through the site.
In that case, you need to create a Tree View of your SharePoint site’s content. Available as an extra navigation option in SharePoint 2013, Tree View provides a systematic, hierarchical view of sites, lists and site libraries. Any sites below the existing site level are also displayed when Tree View is enabled. In SharePoint 2007 though, there are some site templates that display tree view by default.
Creating a Tree View or simply enabling Tree View is fairly simple.

Just follow the steps given below for the same –

Step 1 :

Go to Site Settings


Step 2 :

Click “Tree View”


Step 3 :

  • Under “Tree View”,
  • Select the checkbox corresponding to “Enable Tree View”
  • Deselect the checkbox corresponding to “Enable Quick Launch”


Finally, click “OK”

Step 4 :

Click “List Templates” > “Blog” > Style Library


Step 5 :

Again click “Tree View”

Step 6 :

Select the checkbox corresponding to “Enable Quick Launch”
Next, Click OK

We hope this tutorial fully explains the procedure to enabling Tree View in SharePoint 2013.
