Office 2013 - WebDav not displaying "web view" but plain folder list RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have Office 2010 and 2013 installed on the same machine.

    When I try to access a SharePoint WebDav location in the Open/Save file dialog (e.g. http://site/library), Office 2010 displays a "web view" while Office 2013 "most of the time" displays a regular list of folder (Windows-explorer view).

    Sometimes (rarely) Office 2013 will display the proper "web view". I wasn't able to figure out what it depends on. Apparently this appears after the same location is used in Office 2010, so I guess some HTTP requests get cached.

    How to force Office 2013 to display web views?

    The issue above occurs in both Windows 7 and 8. I also tried both SP2010 and 2013 servers.

    The "web view for file dialog box" feature of SharePoint is described in the following links:
