Hopefully this will be pretty straight forward? I'm cataloguing the Lists on some SP lists and need to know what Content Types they are, Base Data Entry, Items, etc...


Go to

Site Contents > List > Settings (click on the ellipse ... next to the list name) > Scroll down to the content type section.

If you cant see the content types -

Go to settings > advanced settings.

Set Allow management of content types to Yes
