How to find GUID of a list

The GUID(Globally Unique IDentifier) is a special type of identifier used in software applications in order to provide a reference number which is unique in the context for which it is used.The The list GUID must be formatted as: {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}

There are many ways to find the GUID of a list. Here I provided three ways:

1.Go for that particular list ( to which you want to know the GUID) settings then the URL will look like this


 replace %7B with {

             %2D with -

             %7D with }

then it looks like {1556CA76-E4A9-4B45-B145-24AF25476B02}

2. siteactions--> Site Settings-->Site libraries and lists -->select your list you will find the GUID(as above) in url


3.Go for listsettings--->Information management policy settings then in url you will find the GUID(as above)
