We have implemented a new install of SharePoint 2013 at my company. I've set up a web application, a site collection and a site so far. I'm setting up sites and testing them to see how SharePoint 2013 works.

But after I've logged in to SharePoint, if I go to a library where I have full control permissions, then click on a document (I uploaded there earlier), SharePoint makes me log in just to view the document (read only).

Have we configured something wrong in this implementation? How can I correct this? I never had this problem in SharePoint 2010. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Additional notes: I'm using IE 9, 32 bit version, Office Professional Plus 2010 64 bit version, and as previously mentions SharePoint Enterprise 2013.


One thing we had to do was to add the sites to your trusted zone and also make some adjustments in the Windows Credential Manager. I believe its an IE issue, but too have not tracked it down. The solution we have in place works, but i also would like to find out how to fix it without this solution.

  • David, thank you. That fixed the problem. I appreciate your help on this. If I find a different way to fix this, I'll post it here.
