This little extension fills a little usability gap in Magento 2: While browsing and editing categories in the backend it is now possible to simply switch over to products which are in the current category. You don’t have to do that by the menu. This is very helpful for editing a lot of category/product links on the fly. This extension is for free and can be downloaded here.

Extension activation

At any time you can enable and disable this extension in the system configuration. You can do this by opening the backend menu Stores > Configuration. There you will find the entry Magenerds > Category Product Link. After clicking on it you see a dropdown box where you can enable/disable the module. Save the configuration and delete the cache.
