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

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

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?

Conditionally Change Folder Icon in document library view (SP 2007)


Hi All,

How can I change the folder icon in the default document library view?  The catch is, I don't need to do this across the board, instead, I need a custom folder icon based upon the individual folder's properties.

I'm aware of the file ..\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\XML\DOCICON.XML, but that's not what I need.

My initial thought, was to find the page that sharepoint uses as the template, find the <img> src attribute, and chnage it from


to something like


my GetIcon.aspx page would then look up the folder's properties, and return the expected .gif file.  However, I don't know which file is used.

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.
