How do I set the default view to show only logins and not all categories

Community Member

When I start or bring up the Windows Desktop I want to see my list of Logins only, not All Categories which shows an alphabetical list of logins, secure notes and identities.

I have already set my default vault, but when I go to the client it is typically to find a Login. I don't want to see and have to scan through all the other items.

1Password Version: 8.10.0
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Windows 10 Pro
Browser:_ Not Provided
Referrer: forum-search:logins instead of all categories


  • Hello @dlandwirth,

    Great question! If you'd view your items by a specific category such as logins, there's two places to do so:

    1. Select the All Categories dropdown under the search bar and choose the category you'd like:

    1. Add Categories to the left sidebar from the settings menu () or (Ctrl + Comma (,)) > Appearance > Always Show in Sidebar > Categories:

    I hope this information helps, but if you need further assistance, just let us know. We'll be here for you.

    @ag_mike_d Thanks for your reply.

    I know both of these methods. When using the first method, if I change to a different vault, the dropdown always switches back to "all categories". Then I have to select "Logins" again. Even when I switch back to the initial vault it reverts back to "all categories". Is there some way to make my default category for all vaults to be Logins?

    I do not want to use the second method because it always puts Categories on top of Vaults on the sidebar. It would be OK if I could rearrange the sidebar to have vaults above categories, and again, to have the default category be logins.


  • Hello @dlandwirth,

    Thanks for the update and letting me know you were looking for a way to default back to a select category after vault switching. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. There is no way to accomplish this currently, but I'm happy to pass along this feature request to the Product team on your behalf.

    Let us know if you have any other questions. We'll be happy to help!

    Came here to ask the exact same question. Hope this will be picked up on. Thanks.

    -- note that use 1PW on Mac OS, but it has the same behaviour in this respect.

  • Hello @Platypus70,

    Thanks for weighing in on this discussion and that you would like to see the ability for 1Password 8 to default back a specific category when vault switching. I've added this Insight for our Product team's review.

    Same here. I would love to be able to have the category stay as "Logins" every time I sign back in. But just continues to go back to "All Categories."

  • Thanks for the +1 @machwa, I'll pass that along to our Product team.
