You have page layout declaration Magento_Theme_module_dir/view/frontend/layouts.xml or in your theme

And page layouts for example: Magento_Theme_module_dir/view/frontend/page_layout/2columns-left.xml or your theme

Page layout is used also in categories.

Reference: https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.2/frontend-dev-guide/layouts/layout-types.html

  • I already refer this one but my question is "column.top" and what is the use of it. May i change this as some.xyz or etc?
