Little Hacks for SharePoint - 2013 Part 2 ;-)

How enable Sign Inn As a Different User option

In SharePoint - 2013, Sign Inn as as different user is not available by default. To enable this option, follow these steps:
1. On your SharePoint Server, navigate to 15 hive folder.

C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES

2. There will be Welcome.ascx, open this file in notepad or any of your favourite editor.
3.Search for:
        <SharePoint:FeatureMenuTemplate
4. Inside this tag, there will be multiple menu items options, include this snipped inside this tag:

<SharePoint:MenuItemTemplate runat="server" ID="ID_LoginAsDifferentUser" 
Text="<%$Resources:wss,personalactions_loginasdifferentuser%>" 
Description="<%$Resources:wss,personalactions_loginasdifferentuserdescription%>" 
MenuGroupId="100" 
Sequence="100"  UseShortId="true" />

5. Save the file.

Now check your sharepoint site again, "Sign inn as different user" option must be available.


Hope that helps!!!
