Set master page for a particular page in SharePoint

Recently we were working in a public-facing SharePoint 2013 site, where we have created our own custom master page and we applied it throughout the site collections.

By default when you change the master page from Site Settings -> Master Page which is under Look and Feels. The master page will be applied to the whole SharePoint site.

But according to one of my requirements in one of the page we need to set the default Seattle master page.

For this, we have to change the master page on the particular page with the help of SharePoint designer 2013.

Open the SharePoint site using SharePoint designer 2013.

Let us say the particular page presented in the Site Pages document library then click on Site Pages under Site Objects in SharePoint designer. And then right-click on the particular page and click on Edit File in Advanced Mode.

By default when you open any site you can see by default the master page file path will be like below:

MasterPageFile="~masterurl/default.master"

Now let us say if you want to set the master page as Seattle master page then modify the tag like below:

MasterPageFile="/_catalogs/masterpage/Seattle.master"

Then save the page and refresh the page in the browser. You will see the particular page will use the Seattle.master page.
