up one level icon button on the ribbon in library tab. and users cant find it

  • If you were navigated to a folder from a link, this is no good, since back takes you... back. WE want to go UP, not BACK. – Henry Feb 23 '18 at 15:14

Normally the breadcrumb control (the folder on the top left in SP 2010) or the browsers back button is the approach. I have, though, written a custom list breadcrumb to be placed above or below a list view. But that will mean some custom coding (either a webpart, or by JavaScript in a content editor webpart)

I did a simpler hack, putting a basic back button under the list, which is pretty good at calling up the folders after you have clicked into them. Go Back

function goBack() {
