How to Enable only 2013 mode in SharePoint 2013 or how to remove the 2010 mode in SharePoint 2013



How to Enable only 2013 mode in SharePoint 2013 or how to remove the 2010 mode in SharePoint 2013

                                  

Description: While we create the site in SharePoint 2013,we see the options that we can create the site in both 2010,2013 Mode. SharePoint 2013 provides great support allowing you not only to run SharePoint 2010 sites without switching to a SharePoint 2013 mode, but also to create site collections in two possible user experiences SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013. 

This default behavior available when creating a new site collection. This can be easily changed at the web application level by using the server-side object model or Windows Power Shell

Follow the below instructions to do this.

Solution:
Go to SharePoint 2013 Management Shell and execute the below commands.

$wa=Get-SPWebApplication [WebApplication_URL]
$wa
$wa.CompatibilityRange
$wa.CompatibilityRange = [Microsoft.SharePoint.SPCompatibilityRange]::NewVersion
$wa.Update()
$wa.CompatibilityRange

                            
After executing the commands. As you can see in the output Windows, the compatibility level for the web application is now 15. so it’s not possible to create new site collections in a SharePoint 2010 mode as before.

if you try to create a new site collection under the modified web application you will see that there is no option for choosing between a SharePoint 2010 mode or a SharePoint 2013 mode once. The site collection will be created in the 2013 experience version.
