If you don't feel comfortable, or don't understand, Powershell, you can also visit this location: Central Administration > Security > Specify Authentication Providers.

  1. Click the name of the zone ("Default" if your web app wasn't added to a different zone).
  2. You can add check marks to the boxes for "Enable Windows Authentication" and "Enable Forms Based Authentication".
  3. Custom sign-in pages can be designated here as well.
