Finding GUID of List or View from URL

For List:

  1. Navigate SharePoint site
  2. From “Settings” menu select “List Settings
  3. Copy the entire URL and paste in any text editor

  1. Delete everying before and including “List=”.
  2. Change “%7B” to “{
  3. Change all “%2D” to “
  4. Chnage “%7D” to “}

You are now left with the following:


For View:

For View’s GUID you can perform the same steps
In case of View its little tedious, because when you will copy the link in text editor it will also consist of GUID of list and url of Source.
For example it would be something like this
So you have to be careful while removing unnecessary part from the copied link
