I am working on a migrated site and today my prime concept is to enable search box on list, I tried to enable different ways as explained below but no luck.

  1. Edit the list web part -> miscellaneous sections -> but I didn't find "Display Search box" option.

  2. I followed fellow articles and changed view styles Shaded to Default.

Still I am unable to find the Display Search box option on web part miscellaneous section.

Can anyone know please let me help to enable search box on list?

Have you inserted the list to the page as an App Part? (Edit page -> Insert -> App Part -> Select your list) –  moe Aug 12 at 8:18
    
Hi moe, I didn't try that option because of this site is migrated one and there is a no.of pages has lists added on the site, so going to insert web part with views on each page is difficult and time taken. –  nagendra Aug 12 at 8:29
    
I see. If just possible, you could try this on a test site for example and report the results. I don't know that much about migrations, but I know they aren't always that straight-forward :) –  moe Aug 12 at 8:32
    
Hi moe, thanks for your suggestion, I followed your suggestion and I created a page and inserted app part and changed list view style from Shaded to default but still am unable to get search box. –  nagendra Aug 12 at 9:21
