Login as Different User in SharePoint 2013 Preview

When you login to SharePoint 2013 you’ll notice the “Sign in as Different User” is missing from the Personal Menu.

Here are two workaround options:

  1. Manually append the following URL to your site:
    /_layouts/closeConnection.aspx?loginasanotheruser=true
  2. Add a Custom Action to the SharePoint Personal Menu:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
    <CustomAction											
    Id="MyLoginDifferentUser"
    GroupId="PersonalActions"
    Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.StandardMenu"
    Sequence="1000"
    Title="Sign in as Different User">
    <UrlAction Url="/_layouts/closeConnection.aspx?loginasanotheruser=true"/>
    </CustomAction>
</Elements>
