It is a kind of hack in Salesforce. If you want to create/view the list views of standard or custom object you can do this without going object tab.

Go to a list view of records by shortening the Salesforce ID in the URL to just the first 3 letters of the Salesforce ID.

For example, to get to a list of Opportunity,

“” to“ “

Here ap2 is our instance name. You can put your instance name there.
This should work with most standard and custom objects.
