One of the greatest feature of SharePoint 2010 is the awesome checkbox that allow user to delete, manage list items without having to swtich to data sheet view. However, there are cases that checkboxes are missing after upgrade from SharePoint 2007.

The reason why the checkbox is missing is because the list view is set to “Basic” style. We can get the checkbox reappear by going into “modify view” , set the style to “Default”. Then BAM.. checkbox
