Make clicking on document icons open the actual document

Requirement

Make clicking on document icons open a document instead of selecting a row in the SharePoint list view (Just like in 2007).

Solution

  • Download the file: fldtypes_docicon.xsl
  • Copy it to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\template\layouts\XSL on ALL your SharePoint Web Front End servers.
  • Do an IISRESET /Noforce on each server
