Changing a master page

The master page can be change (for Default and System properties) with SharePoint Designer (_catalogs\masterpage) and PowerShell.

To get the currently active master page, use Get-SPWeb:

  • get-spweb -id http://sharepointsite | select CustomMasterUrl

To assign a master page to a site:

  • (get-spweb –id http://sharepointsite).MasterUrl = "_catalogs/masterpage/v4.master"
