Open specific file type automatically in Sharepoint 2010 without click OPEN or SAVE

I have a SharePoint 2010 site that I want to open a .DFT file (using SolidEdge viewer) without having to click OPEN everytime I click the link in my document library.

How can I make it just open without the click OPEN step? I am using IE 11 and Windows 7.

IIS doesn't know how to handle the file type.  You should add a MIME type for the extension.  Try this:

    Open the IIS Microsoft Management Console (MMC), right-click the local computer name, and then click Properties.
    Click MIME Types.
    Click New.
    In the Extension box, type the file name extension that you want (for example, .pdb).
    In the MIME Type box, type application/octet-stream.
    Apply the new settings. Note that you must restart the World Wide Web Publishing Service or wait for the worker process to recycle for the changes to take effect. In this example, IIS now serves files with the .pdb extension.
