Hi

If I chose a collection I want to see a filter menu making it easier to navigate the collection. Like how it is done here https://www.komplett.no/category/11204/datautstyr/pc-komponenter/prosessorer
Look at the filter options on the left side

(the link above is not shopify but just shows what I want to accomplish)

Is it based on tags, vendor type or collection? Is it default bult into shopify or do I need a plugin?

Some themes have this kind of feature available to add and customize directly:

You might want to check these out by previewing a paid theme in your store.

Some shops use apps to add this feature. A few popular ones are:

1. From your Shopify administrator, click Online Store, and after that click on Themes.

2.     Choose or find the theme you need to edit, click Actions, and after that Click Edit HTML/CSS.

3. Under the "Templates" organizer, find and tap on collection.liquid to open it in the online code manager.

4. In the online code editorial manager, find where you might want the drop-down menu to show up.

5. Save changes.

Hi,

I'm sorry to post here because the post is out of date. But I think there are a lot of people still visit the post and they still need a new solution.

1. Do by yourself 

You can create product filter by tags. If your theme doesn't support the feature, you could following the guide: https://help.shopify.com/themes/customization/collections/filter-collections-with-product-tags

2. Use Shopify Apps

Martha has mention about Collection filter and Power Tools Suite app. Another perfect app is Smart product filters

You can try it here: https://apps.shopify.com/smart-product-filter

Thanks
