Do you use a Joomla menu type > VIrtuemart > Category ?

Now I use this option. I want to make it possible to display all the products of the store on the main page.

Yes, is possible - So you have the right solution - just use the settings as Patrick wrote - use menu type Show products from category.
www.minijoomla.org  - new portal for Joomla!, Virtuemart and other extensions
XML Easy Feeder - feeds for FB, GMC,.. from products, categories, orders, users, articles, acymailing subscribers and database table
Virtuemart Email Manager - customs email templates
Import products for Virtuemart - from CSV and XML
Rich Snippets - Google Structured Data
VirtueMart Products Extended - Slider with products, show Others bought, Products by CF ID and others filtering products

I want to display products not from one category, but from all categories that are in the catalog

Yes, that is right, we use this setup on the shops and then I see all products from all categories on one page :)

Of course, in really we don't use it, because show all products in one page if we have shops with 220 000 products big mistake, but as you wish :)

@Aleksxander - Yes, use the category layout. Set the value for Frontend default items per list view in VM Configuration/Templates to be higher than your number of products so there is no pagination. Be aware that in a store with many hundreds of products that page may be slow to load.

That is, when choosing the option - Category, do not select a specific Category. And then there will be products from all Categories? Thanks, I'll try.

We use 1st category == Shops products

But careful, a lot of products on one page is mistake.

Thanks, it worked. In the menu I chose - Virtuemart - Category. But I did not choose the category itself, I left it  -  Top Level Category.
