Step-1:
Go to the following path, You will find one "Welcome.ascx" file there.We need to edit this file to enable this option.

C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web ServerExtensions\15\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES

Step-2:
Open the file welcome.ascx in Visual studio and add the below part of the code above the tag that has "ID_RequestAcess" and save it.

<SharePoint:MenuItemTemplate runat="server" ID="ID_LoginAsDifferentUser"
  Text="<%$Resources:wss,personalactions_loginasdifferentuser%>"
  Description="<%$Resources:wss,personalactions_loginasdifferentuserdescription%>"
  MenuGroupId="100"
