SharePoint 2013 Open List Item in Modal Dialog Window

One of the instant feedback after migrating from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013: List items opens in a new window, rather opening on the same page as a modal popup dialog window! Users prefer opening List forms in a dialog window, so that they don't have to leave the page they are working on. From end-user's perspective, this transition would be distracting and they wants to remain in the same page.

By default, SharePoint 2010 opens list forms in a Modal dialog window when you try to add new item, edit item or view item. But SharePoint 2013 navigates to a different page and opens the list form in a new window as full page.

So, How to open list forms in dialog box instead of navigating to another page? Here is how:

  1. Navigate to the List/ Library Settings
  2. Click on "Advanced settings" link. Scroll down and select "Yes" on Dialog section.sharepoint 2013 open form in dialog
  3. Click Ok to commit your changes.
Now you can see how list forms are opened in dialog box.
