Converting a Virtual Folder into a View

Virtual folders can also be converted into views via the Customize tab of the virtual folder Properties dialog, or by right-clicking a virtual folder and selecting Customize Folder.

After the customization, you can modify the display settings of the new view and create grouping levels in the same way as for other views. Then, for example, in the Memo view, created on the basis of the Memo virtual folder, you can group documents according to meeting types.

Note: Because views can be created in folders, and folders can be converted to views, views and virtual folders may be available parallel in the listing area. Views can therefore contain folders as well as views, and folders can contain views as well as folders.

A folder that has been converted into a view can be restored as a folder by right-clicking it and selecting Remove Folder Customization from the context menu.
