On 'Site settings' -> 'Welcome page' when I enter
/My Site/Shared Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx
and click OK I get the following error:
You can not set the Welcome Page for this site to a URL in the "Forms" folder. Please pick a URL to a Page in the Pages library as the Welcome Page.
Another answer suggests using SharePoint Designer to do this but I don't find the 'set to homepage' option when opening the site and navigating to the 'All Documents' view. (Rightclick only gives me 'Edit File in Advanced mode' and 'Rename' or 'Rename' and 'Delete' and 'List Settings' when in the left pane).
Is there any way to do this without scripts/code in SharePoint 2013?
Edit: My goal is that the 'Files' and 'Library' options are available immediatley without having the user to click on the library title first. In other words: It would be nice to open a library view when visiting the site's home page.
