How to Add Custom Buttons to the SharePoint 2013 Ribbon

Written by Denis Stadler on . Posted in Development

Recently I participated in a SharePoint 2013 project, where the SharePoint 2013 Ribbon had to be customised to fulfil the following business requirements:

  • A new tab containing the specific buttons had to be created
  • Some of the buttons had to be enabled only on single/multiple items’ selection
  • Some business actions had to be performed when the buttons were clicked

SharePoint 2013: Where is the Sign in as Different User option?

I have noticed an interesting thing in SharePoint 2013: there is by default no Sign in as Different User option into the menu.

In order to get it back you need to open the Welcome.ascx file, which is located at the following path: Program Files – Common Files – Microsoft shared – Web Server Extensions – 15 – TEMPLATE – CONTROLTEMPLATES.
