How to Open Word Document in Internet Explorer 11 Without Being Asked to Save It RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    Our company uses ownCloud. To access our ownCloud, we use Internet Explorer 11. Inside our ownCloud there are documents created and shared among users. When I click a Word document, a pop-message appear  - "Do you want to save abc.docx (567 KB) from xxxxowncloud?  Save   Cancel   

    How can I open the document that would launch Word automatically without getting this pop-up message?

    Thank you.
