I use SharePoint Online which comes with Office 365. I would like to add a search field into the document library web part (rather than needing to open the library by itself). Is this possible?

Thank you.

  • I would recommend using your list view pages to utilize all the OOB features like (Filters, Searching, and etc..) – Venkat Konjeti Jun 14 '17 at 18:34

You can do this by editing the Web Part:

  1. Edit the web part
  2. Under Miscellaneous
  3. Tick Display Search Box
