Question Listing epubs and kindle books in calibre

Can someone tell me a way to view separate file formats on the calibre interface please?
Have looked at the user manual but it is too complicated for me.

Tag Browser (the luggage Tag at the bottom if closed):
Formats. These are the list of ones used someplace in your library [how many]
Clicking on one, will show you what titles are available in that format.

or
in the search bar: formats:<format_name>

He was trying to direct you to the Formats section (circled in red) of the Tag browser, see attached. If you can't see the tag browser then toggle the icon (circled in green) in the lower right hand corner that looks like a luggage tag. When you click on the format you wish to see it will place a search in the search bar (circled in blue). You can enter these searches manually if you like. You can even save the searches (right of the search bar) for future use.

Thanks for the picture. Makes it easier
When I click on formats + I get a blank screen. - shows me lots of books but nothing to say what they are
Is there no way I can view them all?

You need to click on the little arrow at the left of the word Formats to open the list. Then you can click on each of those to show (+) or hide (-) those specific formats.

Thanks very much Kirtai.

Now I get it! lol
Didn't see a little arrow before.
Thought there might have been a way though to show file formats in a column the same as series etc.

You can click some of the icons on the bottom right to show/hide specific panes.

As itimpi states you can change the sections shown by clicking the icons in the lower right. If you are referring to the icons you can replace any icons you wish, read this post for more info.

The Favourites star is a Plugin and the toolbar can be changed via Preferences - Toolbar. You can also make more cosmetic changes under Preferences - Look and Feel - Main Interface. I picked up the trash can here in Mobileread somewhere.

There is. Create a custom column (preferences -> Add your own columns). Click on "formats" on the top. Don't check the "show in tag browser"; the formats are already there. Click OK and restart calibre.
