How to See All Woocommerce Variations on Your WordPress Site

If you create “variable products” in Woocommerce, that is, products that have options, like t-shirts that are available in small, medium and large as well as red, green and blue, you can view these by going into a product and then finding the Product data box, clicking the Variations tab and looking at them there.

But what if you just want to see all of the variations on your site, like you can easily get a list of all Pages or Posts from within WP Admin?

Variations in Woocommerce are simply child posts of the Product post type. To see a list of them all, just go into WordPress and click on Products in the left navigation bar. You’ll see a menu like so:
