SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

By default SharePoint has paging 1-30 items in a document library. I want to change this to 1-50 or even 1-100.

How can I do this? I've been looking on the internet but I cannot find a fitting solution.

I would like to change something so all users have this change by default instead of changing view each time.

If you have list definition, you can change it in Schema.xml.

Go to Views, find your default view and set RowLimit to 50/100

Sorry for late reply, but thanks! I've changed it to FALSE instead. <RowLimit Paged="FALSE">30</RowLimit> –  Rob Jan 31 '13 at 14:55

You would need to modify item limit of your current view (like allitems). Go to list/library settings, click on your current view. Under the section "Item Limit", enter your desired paging size (like 100), and select the radio button "Display items in batches of the specified size".

There is an easier way to do this. Simply go to the List in Sharepoint, click on Modify View, and then scroll down to "Item Limit" and then change the setting from 30 to whatever you want.

This didn't exist back in 2013. Thanks for the update –  Rob Jul 21 at 18:03

Just to add to Zeeple:

Edit your page > click on the web part > click modify (and again modify view) > scroll down and click on item limit > change to whatever number you want and leave on the "display items in batches of the specified size".

It worked for me.
