Metadata navigation is a new feature in SharePoint 2010 that allows you to quickly find and filter content in large document libraries. End users will get a new navigation pane in the left-hand side navigation of the document library when they enable the Metadata navigation. The entries displayed in the pane are the columns that are specified in the Metadata Navigation settings. Clicking on any of the items in the navigation panel of the document library, you can filter the content based on your criteria.
You can enable the Metadata navigation from list settings and Metadata navigation settings. The fields that are available in the navigation are Content types, Single-value Choice Fields, and Managed Metadata Fields.
