When configuring a Search Result Source in Central Administration, if you come across an error like this in the subject line, it’s very simple to fix.

You justneed to activate the “Search Server Web Parts and Templates” feature.

Just go to SharePoint Management Shell (run as administrator) and run this command:
Enable-SPFeature SearchWebParts -url http://<Your Central Admin Url>

Refresh the Search Results Page and you’re good to go.

Let’s say you have accidentally deleted a file and you need to get it back. You’re new to SharePoint 2013, and in 2010, it was easy to get to, there at the bottom of the page on the left, but now it’s not there.

Have no fear, you can still use it to restore your files. As a Site Collection Administrator, just login and go to Site Actions/Site Settings/Site Collection Administration. One of the items should be ‘Recycle Bin’. Click on that link and go to the file or files you need to restore. Select it with the checkbox to the left, and at the top of the list, click on ‘Restore Selection’.

That’s all there is to it!

Changing the Favicon in SharePoint is very easy.
1. Create your icon and name it ‘favicon.ico’
2. Go to the path on the server below and back up the original icon.
3. Save them both somewhere to be able to be used at a future date, if necessary.
4. Copy/Paste your new favicon.ico to the path.
5. If it doesn’t show up immediately, it could be cached, so press Ctrl-F5 or use your Browser Tools to refresh the cache – voila!

C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\IMAGES (for 2013)
C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\IMAGES (for 2010)
