I need to activate the Team Collaboration Lists feature and deactivate the Minimal Download strategy in a user's blog and personal site. I am a farm admin, is that possible using powershell?

UPDATE: Some features are not showing up in some sites. See the differences: enter image description here

How can I enable the Team Collaboration Features in a particular site if this is not available?

If you are farm-admin and you can use server-code. PowerShell can be used.

Use Enable-SPFeature or Disable-SPFeature

If you use Get-SPFeature keep in mind, that (mostly) only enabled features are listed. The docs says:

The Get-SPFeature cmdlet behaves differently at each scope, returning the enabled Features at each level. If no scope is provided, all installed Features are returned.

  • Great, thanks! I have an issue though. There are some site features, for example Team Collaboration Lists, that are not showing up in some particular users. I have uploaded some screenshots.
