From Files New Document/Upload Document/New Folder/Edit Document/Library Setting have been greyed out for all web application/ sites. I have admin rights with Full Control and checked with all browsers (run as administrator)

Any ideas? Thanks

  • take a look into Central Administration, any errors? – Gwny Jul 22 '15 at 12:26
  • The database or site collection could be make read only? It's for all lists not only document libraries right? – Andreas Jul 22 '15 at 15:37
  • Giwny there are errors in Central Admin also. For example at "View these issues" when i click on an issue "Run Now", "Reanalyze Now" etc are greyed out. – Nikos Jul 23 '15 at 7:43
  • @Andreas my account has dbo rights I think is something with C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES\DefaultTemplates.ascx. Cause i have some errors there, but, i dont want to try to fix them. Is there any way to restore a previous version? – Nikos Jul 23 '15 at 7:51
  • If you haven't changed those files manually (which you shouldn't have) than that shouldn't be the issue. Are all actions greyed out in every list? Or is it only document libraries? – Andreas Jul 23 '15 at 7:58
