Internet Explorer Keeps Asking for Username and Password

Internet Explorer Keeps Asking for Username and Password

While working on SharePoint 2010 on remote machine it may happen that whenever you try to open a SharePoint site, the internet explorer will ask for Username and Password (instead of taking current logged in user's authentication).

This issue could occur if the setting is set to prompt for the User Name and Password

Follow the below steps:

1.  Open Internet explorer, click Tools – Internet Options .

2.  Click the Security tab – Custom Level button.

3.  Under the settings look for “User Authentication Logon” check the box for “Automatic Logon only in Intranet Zone”.

4.  Click Apply. Click OK.

Now restart your Internet Explorer and check if it's working.

Enjoy & Have fun!! :)

Drag and Drop (Add) Web Parts in SharePoint 2010

Drag and Drop (Add) Web Parts in SharePoint 2010

One of the things that I’ve heard people complain over the years after the release of SharePoint 2010 is the disappearance of Drag & Drop web parts capability. This feature was useful because it allowed the page designer to add as many web parts on a page without having to click add and repeating the process all over again.

This feature is available on SharePoint 2010 with a little manipulation of the site URL of the page that you want to modify by adding the “?toolpaneview=2”

If your URL is


replace it with


By making this small change, the “Add Web Parts” zone is displayed on the right hand side of the page similar to what was available in SharePoint 2007 and WSS 3.0 and from here on you can happily drag and drop.

Thanks & Enjoy!! :)
