SharePoint 2013 setting Document open preferences

Occasional Visitor

Hi All, 

 

I am trying to set documents to open via the MS app on a global level, I can only seem to do it at the lowest container level. 

 

Can anyone advise how I can do this globally for one of the sites in my SharePoint 2013?

 

Kindest regards, 

Molly

Hello @Keaney22 ,

 

here are the settings you looking for:

Or on higher level:

Well, This behaviour can be changed at the following levels:

  • Disable office web apps in SharePoint 2013 for entire farm.
  • Disable Office Web Apps for a particular File type.
  • Enable opening documents in client applications at Site collection level.
  • Change office documents opening behavior in SharePoint document library settings.
