How to Easily/Quickly Ungroup by Categories

How do I easily ungroup contacts when viewing them in a group by category view? It's easy enough to turn on the category function by simply clicking the category button. Is there not an easy way to turn it off with one click? I can't that button be a toggle button to be turned on or off and thereby remove the group by category feature easily?

It seems the only way to do this is to go into the change view settings and manually turn off the group by categories feature. I would love to see how to do this quickly with the one click button. Thanks

You could use Reset View (which changes to group by company) - or right click on the row of field name and choose Show group by box and drag categories out.

There isn't a 'go back to the previous view' option but you could use custom views if you want to flip between two views.
