I have a SharePoint 2010 site collection that doesn't have publishing features enabled (on purpose), and was wondering if it was possible to set the site's default master page... without using SharePoint Designer.

Microsoft's information about Master Page deployment is somewhat lacking.

Append /_layouts/changesitemasterpage.aspx to your site URL. You will get the option you are looking for.

  • Whoa, you're right! Why isn't that option available in the Site Settings manager?
