Disable ShortPoint on a Page (SharePoint 2013/2016 On-Premise)

If you are encountering issues with your SharePoint 2013/2016 On-Premise environment, and you want to check if it is coming from ShortPoint, then this article can help you with that. This article will mainly provide you easy steps on how you can disable ShortPoint temporarily to isolate if the issue is coming from ShortPoint or SharePoint itself. 


Before we begin

  • The solution described in this article will only disable ShortPoint on a given page temporarily. It will not remove anything from your page at all. As soon as you activate it again from the site settings, you will start seeing your page the way it was before.
  • This option only works for SharePoint 2013/2016 On-Premise environments.  If you are using ShortPoint SPFx for the Office 365 or SharePoint 2019, then please refer to Disable ShortPoint on a Page Using URL Parameter (Office 365/SharePoint 2019).
