The Device does not know what Group it is a member of. The Group knows what Devices it contains. As such, listing the Group(s) for each Device is nearly impossible.
Perhaps a better way to achieve what is needed is to create a SmartGroup listing all Devices that are not members of any Groups. Here's how:
1. Go to "Devices" tab
2. Click "Add -> Add New SmartGroup".
3. Configure as follows:
-SmartGroup contains "Devices"
-Start with "All Devices"
-Remove Devices where "Group" is "Group A"
***Where Group A is one of your groups.
4. Add Similar filter for every Group you have.
5. Click OK.
At this point you should have a SmartGroup that contains Devices which do not belong to any of the Groups you have added a filter for.
Let me know if this helps.

That worked (90%).
I think I followed the instructions correctly. I now have an Orphans group with some switches, etc, that we set up some time ago as noobs. So that gives me a list of what needs to be cleaned up. Thanks!
The only gotcha is, I have this nice list of devices, and I would like to check the box and Move them to the appropriate group, but the Move button is grayed out.
If that is more "user error" I apologize. As it is, I still need to do (less) manual edits, copying into note pad, and going back to All Devices with the list.
