When we create a new SharePoint site and/or new document libraries, they will have their number of default major versions to 500

enter image description here

so is there a way to change this number to be 50 instead of 500 and apply these settings to new and existing libraries?


1 Answer 1


To new libraries: No

To existing libraries: Make an automated powershell script that iterates over all of your existing libraries and makes sure that the number of versions matches the one you want.
