This section tells you how to customize your view, and organize the plug-ins and columns displayed.
Over a period of time, as you download and deploy plug-ins, the number of plug-ins on your list increases. You can sort these plug-ins to view only the ones you require, for example, only the plug-ins available, or only the plug-ins deployed.
In order to customize your view, follow these steps.
All, using this filter, you can view all plug-ins, including available, downloaded, and deployed plug-ins.
Only Available, using this filter, you can view the plug-ins that are available for download.
