Removing edit access to the homepage

Please note: This requires site owner permissions.

If you want to only allow site owners to edit the SharePoint home page, follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Navigate to your SharePoint site.
  2. Select the settings cog in the top-right corner.
  3. Click on ‘Site contents’.
  4. From the list of contents, choose ‘Site Pages’.
  5. Right-click on Home.aspx then choose ‘Manage Access’.
  6. Within the Direct access section of the Manage Access pane, you’ll need to amend the Members and Visitors groups. To do this, select the arrow next to the group name then choose ‘Can view’.

This will stop users in the members and visitors groups from being able to edit the page. The changes are effective immediately.
