The new global navigation in SharePoint 2013 looks very promising, anyway I assume that many persons out there want to change it. Especially the “SharePoint” title.

There are different approachs which can be considered to change the global navigation. For example, changing the Mastpages, using the newly introduced Design Packages or doing some dirty java script hacks. All of them are giving an impression as this is a complete overkill for such a small issue. The good news, it is.

Before the script:

After the script:

Microsoft has actually added a new property to the web application which allows us to replace the SharePoint text with custom HTML by PowerShell or object model.

With the following script you can change it and add your custom HTML there:

$app = Get-SPWebApplication -Identity https://www.fiechter.eu

$app.SuiteBarBrandingElementHtml = “<div class=’ms-core-brandingText’>AdriansPoint</div>”

$app.Update()
