I am currently working on the masterpage of my sharepoint site and I want to hide the welcome drop down menu that appears on the top right corner of my sharepoint site and all the tabs. In place of a drop down I only want to display the user's name. How can I do that?
You can hide or remove the welcome control
< wssuc:Welcome id="IdWelcome" runat="server" EnableViewState="false" style="display:none" >
To add user name without the code use this tutorial
