When I go to Documents folder that I have created and access a folder, I would like to open and check out a file in one step, but appears to need two. It appears that the only time that it updates "Checked Out To" is when I choose check out.
Then I have to go open the file via explorer or Word/Excel (or whatever is appropriate). If i double click on the file while in SharePoint or choose Edit in Microsofft... mode, it does open the file, but does not indicate that it is not checked out.
I want to make sure that no one else can also check out or open the same file and make changes/updates while I am doing this. Does everyone have to go through the two steps to check out and then open to enable this? Or is there quick one step
that I am missing to open a file and indicate that it is checked out?
