SharePoint Preview Window creats diffent Links if i use Tablet or Desktop RRS feed

All replies

  • Hi Ueli,

    The document link with “?d=w***” is durable link, after linking Office Online Server with SharePoint Server 2016, all the documents that can be opened by default with Office Online Server will have an ID added at the end of the URL.

    Try to check if your Tablet computer have correct version of Office client installed.

    If so, go to the library settings->Advanced settings->make sure you select “Open in the client application” for Default open behavior for browser-enabled documents.

    Best regards,

    Grace Wang

  • Hi Grace

    Thanks for your reply, i've checked the settings, they are correct:

    And the Documents opens correctly with the Client Office, but the link in the preview window is "wrong" with the durable link thing.

    Now the problem is, if somebody takes this link and send it per E-Mail to another user, then the document opens in Office online.

    So the Question is why is the link in the preview window on the tablets with durable link and on the Desktops not?

    Best regards
