I have newly installed Farm of Sharepoint 2013 on single server

I would like that any files Excel, Pdf, word, powerpoint... opens in browser. I was searching and already applied in advanced settings of the library function to open files in browser.

But when I click on the document it's first downloading it then open in the application.
