So I'm trying to figure out why when I go into a specific list on the right side I have the "View" Dropdown, but when I am on a page with a List view web part with Show Toolbar it does not have the View Dropdown. I know that you can use the breadcrumb but this is not the solution I need. When you open the page in SPD the view drop down is visible in the list view web part, I cant seem to find a tag that is hiding it on the page. I know this was done intentionaly because of the breadcrumb, but there has to be a way to display it on the Toolbar as it appears in SPD. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Views is not an option for list view web parts placed on web part pages. It is defined in the web part settings when dropping it in a web part zone. This has been the case since 2007 if not earlier.
