DocIcon link to item not working in SharePoint 2010

A client upgrade from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 surfaced the following unexpected behavior.

When clicking a icon in a list the icon lo longer links to the list item. This was the default behavior in 2007 but is missing in 2010. Since the customer still uses the 2007 user interface everything looks the same and the functionality is just missing. Very confusing for everyone.

I found the following two approaches to work around the missing functionality:

Microsoft Support: SharePoint 2010: Clicking the icon in Type column is highlighting the item instead of launching the document

How to: get SharePoint (& Office) to work with FQDN without login dialogs

A nice feature of the Microsoft eco-system is that everything just works together. Another nice feature is that sometimes we need to make it so.

Scenario:

An organization has a normal Microsoft environment, Windows Server, AD, Windows 7 clients, SharePoint 2010 etc. The SharePoint server has a Web application on standard port 80, accessible through both the NetBIOS/computer name (http://server) and a DNS-based general FQDN (http://portal.company.local). when accessing the site through the FQDN, everything works as expected until we try to open an explorer view to a document library, or try to save an Office document to a site. When doing this through the server name, automatic login works, when using FQDN the user is presented with a login dialog/prompt for credentials.

The first thing to check is that the sites are in the IE Local Intranet zone. Local Intranet zone is the only zone that enables automatic login by default.

The next thing is to enable automatic forwarding of credentials to the server using the following registry hack:

  1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
  2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesWebClientParameters

  3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Multi-String Value.
  4. Type AuthForwardServerList, and then press ENTER.
  5. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
  6. In the Value data box, type the URL of the server that hosts the Web share, and then click OK.

(After changing, remember to restart the computer or restart the WebClient service)

How to: Get Explorer View To Work In SharePoint 2010

A common problem in SharePoint Explorer View (The possibility to view the contents of a document library in the good old Windows File Explorer) is that exploring takes forever…

Update 2013-05-31: Reference https://www.stefanjohansson.org/2013/05/unable-to-open-sharepoint-online-document-library-in-file-explorer in case you have Windows 7, Internet Explorer 10 and this doesn’t work…

Open in explorer can be accessed through the user interface using the Library tab as below. You can also directly access a library by entering the address in explorer such as \serversitelibrary etc…

To fix this, you need to change a setting in Internet Explorer Options, go to settings – Connections and click “LAN settings”

Change the Automatically detect settings check box so that it is not checked, as below:

This makes the explorer interface work better…

 

 

If you are having other issues, are using Windows XP or are having issues creating files through the explorer view, the following TechNet blog entry have some general information:
