Open Hyperlinks to documents in Windows Internet Explorer

This policy determines whether hyperlinks to Office documents open inside the application, or inside a browser window. The default in Office 2007 and greater (changed from previous releases) is to open within the Office applications. This behavior can also be driven from the Windows shell (in Windows XP and prior): Tools | Folder Options... | File Types | | Advanced | Browse in same window.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista
