View users and SharePoint groups and edit the Quick Launch group list

As a site owner, you can view all users that have been granted access to your site as well as all SharePoint groups for your site. Note that in previous versions of Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, all users must be added to at least one group. However, in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, users can be added to a site without adding them to a group.

 Note   Prior to Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, SharePoint groups were called site groups.

By default, all SharePoint groups are listed on the People and Groups: All Groups page. This includes the default SharePoint groups, any SharePoint groups added to this site, and any SharePoint groups inherited from the parent site. However, you can edit the group list to control which groups appear under the Groups heading in the Quick Launch of the People and Groups pages.
