Customize SharePoint Library Menu Items

Hi, In a library with file, the menu items available for any file is: View Properties, Edit Properties, Manage Permissions, Edit in <ApplicationName>, Delete, Send To, Check Out, Workflows, Alert Me . Now, I want to get rid of Edit Properties, Manage Permissions, Edit in <ApplicationName>, Delete, Check Out . Added to this is the need to remove the option in the Actions menu that states "Open With Windows Explorer " and finally the "Upload " menu is to go out. Any JScript for this or a file I need to edit to get this result? I need this because the business wants it out, its bordering on security. ThanksYou've only got one life; help as many people as you can, and enjoy it while it lasts.

Visual C++ Runtime Library error when opening documents in Powerpoint 2010 from Sharepoint link



I posted this question on the Office Powerpoint forum and did not get much response so thought I would try here.   Here is the link to that post  http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/pptshare/thread/36a58d07-b1ad-4935-a14e-086dae8cb786

I'm running Windows 7 with Office 2010.  We have a Sharepoint 2007 server.  Whenever I click a link from our Intranet site I get the error "this application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.  Please contact the applications's support team for more information."  It asks if I want to open in safe mode and I say yes and it never opens. 

During testing I also find that if I have a blank powerpoint .ppt file that I try to save to the same document library on the same site it works fine, but if I try to save a blank .pptx file to the site I get the same runtime error. 

This does not happen on all powerpoint or office documents being opened from the Intranet.  If I boot to safe mode it works fine.    If I copy the files local they work fine.  Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks so much!!!

Link from Document Library to UNC Path


Can anyone tell me if it is possible to create a link from a document library to a UNC path?

Thanks in advance.



Document icon and title link in document library don't navigate on click for one user using IE8


On a pretty vanilla SharePoint document library, a particular user browsing with IE8 can click on the document icon or the title link for a Word document but nothing happens.  Other document types were not tested, so I can't say if it was specific to Word documents. The user can however pull up the menu at the right of the title and select "Open in Microsoft Office Word" which will open the document in Word and is then able to modify and save the document.  The behavior has not been observed from other users using IE8.  I've reviewed the users Internet Options settings and didn't see anything out of the ordinary and tried disabling pop-up blocker and other potentially interfering features without changing the observed behavior.  The user is from a different location and his configuration may or may not represent the stock configuration at that site, so I can't dismiss it without determining whether it would affect all users at his site.  Word 2007 is installed on the user's machine.

Does this sound familiar?  Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

Add Document link missing from library



I have a SharePoint 2010 farm that was upgraded from MOSS 2007.

I have noticed that in some of my document libraries, there is a tick box next to each item in the list, and an Add Document link at the bottom of the list, but in other Document libraries, the tick box and link are not there.

How do I get these to display for all document libraries?

Hyperlinking to individuals folder in a document library from one link

I have created a document library with a folder belonging to each person in our staff. I created a link in the top menu labeled "My Files". Is it possible from the "My Files" hyperlink to link directly to the folder of the individual logged in? Currently right now the link just opens the directory and the user will see just one folder which is ok but it would be neat to have it direct right to the root of their folder.

Infopath will not allow to customize list forms if the list contains lookup fields with "link to ite


I am posting this here, because the error message is a little misleading: It will say that you may have an incompatible field types, corrupt fields, or fields are mandatory and should not be. As a remedy it's suggested to either make them non-mandatory fields or to delete them and recreate them.

Solution: Just lookup to your field without the "link to item" option. 


Add Document link in Document Library




On my development server, I created a forms library and somehow or other, I have managed to work it that the Add Document link below the library list, actually creates a new form from the default template, rather than uploading one, this is perfect and much more intuitive.

I'm now trying to repeat this process in a document library and can't figure it out. Can anyone tell me how I might have done this in the Forms Library???

Or is it just a difference in funcationality between a form library and a document library????

Help please.
