I want to create all product page with the filters, toolbar, pagination.

I can do it by creating a new category with the name All Products and assign all products in it. But I guess this is not a good approach, as if every time new products added to the website it should also be added to All Products category. There is a lot of chances of human error.

Is there a way of calling a category page with the root level category? like from ID: 2

It's okay if anyone doesn't want to write code for me, but if anyone can help me find an approach to do it that would be great.

I recently did the same sort of work. First you need to override Category block because you want the All products page just like category page. In order to, get more understanding check getCurrentCategory() function which set the current category to root category

Add block Path: app\code\Vendor\AllProducts\Block\Index\Index.php

<?php

namespace Vendor\AllProducts\Block\Index;


class Index extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template {

    public function __construct(\Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\Context $context, array $data = []) {

        parent::__construct($context, $data);

    }


    protected function _prepareLayout()
    {
        return parent::_prepareLayout();
    }

}

Add Front controller, path should be like: app\code\Vendor\AllProducts\Controller\Index\Index.php

<?php

namespace Vendor\AllProducts\Controller\Index;

class Index extends \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action
{
    private $context;
    private  $response;
    private  $redirect;
    /**
     * @var \Magento\Framework\UrlInterface
     */
    private $url;


    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context $context,
        \Magento\Framework\UrlInterface $url
    )
    {
        parent::__construct($context);
        $this->context = $context;
        $this->response = $context->getResponse();
        $this->redirect = $context->getRedirect();
        $this->url = $url;
        //return 
    }

    public function execute()
    {

        $this->_view->loadLayout();
        $this->_view->getLayout()->initMessages();
        $this->_view->renderLayout();
    }

    public function getResponse()
    {
        return $this->response;
    }
}

Add di.xml in your module for overriding guidance Path: app\code\Vendor\AllProducts\etc\di.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
<preference for="Magento\Catalog\Block\Category\View" type="Vendor\AllProducts\Block\Category\View" />

Override catalog_category_view.xml in your module. Path should be like: app\code\Vendor\AllProducts\view\frontend\layout\allproducts_index_index.xml
