#1MinuteTip In Salesforce You have the option of pinning a particular list view in a tab so that when you navigate to that tab, you see the data as per selected list view.

For a long time, I did not understand why it got reset to the default “Recently Viewed” list every now and then… till I came across a help article from Salesforce. The pinned list view uses browser cookie and if you clear your browser’s cache, the pin list returns to the default view. And for the same reason it doesn’t sync between browsers.
