I created new custom masterpage. But "Sign as different user" option disappear in WelcomeMenuBox.

is there a way to add this option, maybe i remove it by accidently?

  • Is this Sharepoint 2013 on premise? There is no option for "Sign in as a different user" in Sp2013. So no, you haven't removed it by accident. – Christoffer Sep 25 '14 at 5:40
  • yes @user19952. I didn't know this but I learned. Thanks. – zengel Sep 25 '14 at 5:51

By default in SharePoint 2013 there is no option for "Sign in as different user". Follow the below steps to enable it

Step: 1

Go to the location C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web ServerExtensions\15\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES.

Here we have a file named welcome.ascx.

Step 2: Open that file and add the blow code

<SharePoint:MenuItemTemplate runat="server" ID="ID_LoginAsDifferentUser"

Paste this code above the tag which has ID_RequestAcess.

Step 3: Refresh the site it will be available.

  • Thanks a lot @Anuja. I followed this steps and my issue is solved. – zengel Sep 25 '14 at 5:50
