Unable to see "upload multiple documents" and other dropdown selections


  • I have a few users accessing MOSS on our local network who are not getting some important sharepoint functionality. This includes not being able to see the "upload multiple documents" option and also "open with windows explorer". These users have contribute level permissions. Other users with the same permission levels are able to see both of those options. It doesn't seem like it would be a Sharepoint issue, but rather an Internet Explorer issue.

    Also, these users are able to see those options by running the IEtab extension in Google Chrome ... weird

    Any ideas?

  • Thanks Udayakumar, but I figured out my issue that i'm sure will also help out a few others. It turns out that if you run Internet Explorer 64-bit browser, you will lose some functionality in sharepoint including what I mentioned above. Always run the 32-bit version.
