Have a look at my GitHub SharePointOnline-ScriptSamples, where you can find this SharePoint script and 280 others!

You can find all my repositories at PowershellScripts @ GitHub



A short Powershell script to allow management of content types for a SharePoint Online list or library.


It is an equivalent of List>>List Settings>>Advanced>>Content types in Graphic User Interface (see screenshot)




Applies to lists and libraries.



It requires installed  SharePoint Online SDK

You have to enter the list information before running the script:


# Paths to SDK. Please verify location on your computer. 
Add-Type -Path "c:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll"  
Add-Type -Path "c:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll"  
# Insert the credentials and the name of the site and list 
$ListName="Tasks list" 
$ContentTypesEnabled =$false
