I need to allow to open attachments when clicked in Internet Explorer 10.  Users only can save a document, but I need to allow the option to Open the document.

Any idea how?  I use GPO's.

the "Speichern" (means "Save" in english) will save in temp folder to then open the file with default viewer.

Yes, "speichern" means save.  But I want the option "Open" directly without saving the document.

Hi angelIII hope you are fine?

@whenz
Do you have Office 2010 or 2013? And you need this only for MS Office files or all files?

Hi hepeleonie

We use Office 2010, if I need to allow the option "Open" for all files (also pdf etc.).

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Download Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer on a Test Client and run it. Do you miss some updates?

this has nothing to do with windows updates.  I figured out that the attachements from the intranet don't have the option to "open" files directly.  When I surf on other websites I can open files like pdf's directly.

There was a fix for this problem. One case was opened and the solution from MS was to install all updates.
