Missing "Sign in as Different User" option in SharePoint 2013

If you are missing "Sign in as Different User" option in SharePoint 2013, here are few solutions:

Temporary Solutions:

1)Change the siteurl with yours and it will ask you for the new username and password


Keep in mind first option may not work in some browsers and ie10

2) Open internet explorer by  using "run as different user" option  (Shift+ right click) by entering the username and password that you like

Permanent Fix:

1) Open welcome.ascx file. Below is the path of file:
 C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES\welcome.ascx

2) Put this code in welcome.ascx page

<SharePoint:MenuItemTemplate runat="server" ID="ID_LoginAsDifferentUser"



MenuGroupId="100"   Sequence="100"   UseShortId="true"   />
