      The 5,000 item threshold is likely here to stay. We are aware that it takes awareness on both sides to get past this limitation: list owners have to build the right fields, indices, and indexed views so that end user queries can run successfully in large lists. And then, end users have to run the correct queries – they can’t just open the root of the list, they have to use a filtered, indexed view.

      We want to pursue work that helps on both these ends – for example, proactively indexing more lists, making suggestions to list owners for views to create that will help end users, and helping end users at query time pick filters that will unblock their queries. Additionally, we want to increase our support for running more types of queries in large lists when an index is present – for example, instead of requiring an indexed…

      I cannot believe that anyone would scroll through 5,000+ list items (& documents), BUT we do need to be able to easily filter a 5,000+ lists and/or retrieve calculations on the results of 5,000+ so is a possible solution.....

      Provide with every list a filter/refiner web part that appears above the list if switched on lets say in the view settings. The web part could auto show the fields that have been set in the view settings, so users can select from option fields, select dates, etc...The list on open can either show no data or the first 'x' number of results based on the view and a message informing the user that only 'x' is being shown. If the refine/search results is over 5,000+ show the max amount but provide any count/sum set in the view. Just putting it out there (maybe someone below has !).
