Context menu on document library web part

  Asked By: Wendy    Date: Sep 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 6418

There is a context menu on document library documents.
But once I add the document library as a web part to a
page, the drop down context menu on the documents does
not show up anymore.

Is there a way to configure the document library web
part to enable the context menu?

I think what he is referring to is the OOB document  Library in the site gallery.

In order to activate the Edit menu  in your document library  web part, follow these steps:

1. If using SPS, click Edit Page

2. Modify Shared Page > Modify Shared web  Part > Select your document library web part

3. When the panel appears, near the top choose Customise Current View

4. You should see a list of the columns available for display in your document library. Uncheck Name (with link to document) and check Name (linked to document with edit menu) from the available columns.

5. You will need to reorder the fields to suit your needs

6. Click OK to accept the changes and view the results.

I hope you find this useful.
