I use SharePoint 2013 and I need to change my current user in my SharePoint site.
How can I change my current user?
How can I add sub menu (sign in as different user) to my menu ?

Save the file --> Now, the menu item shall be displayed.
3. Modify the SharePoint MasterPage via Designer or VS module
Open the master page --> Search for
This will add the 'sign is as another user' into the site actions dropdown.
And then after tag with Id
This is my source link. Sign in as different user in SharePoint 2013
Much like Derek Gusoff, I use a bookmarklet. Thought I would post it in the interest of added options.
