As an admin, how to check-in all checked-out files by all users?

Occasional Contributor

Hi, Our customer has disabled a feature in one of their library to "Require check-out before editing file".

When this was done, many of the files were checked-out and those users cannot check-in them anymore.


We are receiving many requests that some files cannot be edited anymore by other users due to this issue.


What is the best way to check-in all files as an admin in a specific library which were checked-out by user? This library has a huge list of files and folders.

I can run PowerShell script if needed.
