Yesterday I was reading the SharePoint Designer 2010 section of the MVP Real World SharePoint 2010 book. There was this great tip explaining how to login as a different user with SharePoint Designer 2010.
The issue is that the functionality is pretty hidden away!
To login as a different user do the following:-
- Open SharePoint Designer 2010
- If you look down on the bottom left hand side you will see an icon that looks like this:
- Click on this icon
- A message will appear saying “You are logged in as DOMAIN\username, Click OK to close all items and login as someone else.”
- Click OK and you will be prompted for a username and password
