I have customized an out of the box web part (for example a content query web part found in the "content rollup" category in Sharepoint 2013) and when I add it to a SharePoint page, I want it to show under a different category.

Is it possible to do such a thing ?

Yes , you can , but it's not preferred to do this with a build in web part.


  • Go to Root Site > Site Setting > Site app permissions Web Designer Galleries > Web Part .

  • Check your web Part (if not there upload it) > click on edit button at edit column

  • Below Group section > Specify your own value:
