Sign in as Different User in SharePoint 2013

It’s been noted that the “Sign in as a Different User” menu command is missing in SharePoint 2013

You can add the menu item back in, but I would suggest only doing this on test or development SharePoint servers. To do this, repeat this edit on all servers in your SharePoint farm:
  • Locate the file \15\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES\Welcome.ascx and open in a text editor.
  • Add the following element before the existing element with the id of “ID_RequestAccess”:
    <SharePoint:MenuItemTemplate runat="server" ID="ID_LoginAsDifferentUser"
  • Save the file.
Now, the menu item shall be displayed:
