PowerShell : Desktop Experience Feature

By | July 28, 2010


Today I find a strange behaviour, my Office 2010 can not browse to the SharePoint 2010 document library. In short, I can not save my document directly to SharePoint 2010.  Office 2010 provide Save and Send functionality, which should give me functionality to save directly to SharePoint 2010 as what it does in previous version; so what could be the problem?

Saving to SharePoint 2010 document library requires WebDAV functionality via Web Client service. Unfortunatelly the Web Client service is not enabled by default, and it is part of Desktop Experience features.  So, how can we enable it using PowerShell?

# Open PowerShell console and then type

import-module servermanager
Add-WindowsFeature Desktop-Experience
