ListView applies on a tab-by-tab basis in the ToolBox. That is, one tab can have List view while another has Icon view.

The List and Icon views are similar to those in Windows Explorer. In List view, the contents of the Toolbox are listed as text descriptions, one after another, with an icon on the left side. In Icon view, each item is represented only by an icon. You can get a tool tip description of the icon by moving over it with the mouse arrow.
