SharePoint 13 – Workaround for – Sign in as Different User

Hello All,

I was doing some testing for my application and there is need for changing with different user who has different permission than the current logged in user. I clicked on current user in right top corner; pop appears but no “Sign in as Different User” option. So in SharePoint 2013 there is no “Sign in as Different User” option available as shown in following diagram

One possible solution is open new browser and log in with different user.  

But if we want to log in as different user in the same browser then other workaround is using direct URL in address browser, I opened my SP 2010 site and check the URL – _layouts/closeConnection.aspx?loginasanotheruser=true, I copied this URL and appended to my 2013 site url and it worked well.

Only thing SP 2013 added automatically 15 hive in URL so URL became _layouts/15/closeConnection.aspx?loginasanotheruser=true”.
