No Multiple Upload ? No Connect to Outlook ?!

If by Internet Explorer you can’t see some SharePoint Document Library & List links like “Connect to Outlook” in “Action” menu or “Upload Multiple Files” in “Upload” menus in document libraries … it’s because that some SharePoint related Add-ons are disabled ! ( IE Security )

There is an ActiveX Control with name : STSSYNC

To Solve this issue in Internet Explorer 6 or 7 or 8 , go to Tools , Manage Add-ons , Enable or Disable Add-ons . Look for SharePoint Stssync handler and Enable it . Then restart your Internet Explorer . ( Close All & Open New Window )

There are also some related Add-ons that may help you Enable other functionalities:

  • SharePoint Export Database Launcher –> Open with Access
  • SharePoint OpenDocuments Calss
  • SharePoint Spreadsheet Launcher –> Export To Spreadsheet
  • SharePoint Stssync Handler –> Connect To Outlook
  • SharePoint OpenXML Documents
  • STS Upld Upload Ctl Class  –> Upload Multiple Docs
  • Microsoft Office Visio 12 Diagram Launch Control –> Create Visio Digram

I also should Thanks to Cornell, Scott because his blog first helped me to solve this issue .

    I am trying to link to outlook, but, as you have stated above, this icon is not showing up in my list of actions. I checked my activeX controls and STSSYNC is Enabled . . . any other ideas?

    Thanks,

You can’t upload multiple files to a document library from within Firefox.  This is due to the fact that for some of these actions.  SharePoint 2010 does indeed still use ActiveX controls.  In fact, some people don’t even have this option in Internet Explorer according to this post – https://sharepoint4u.wordpress.com/2009/05/07/no-multiple-upload-no-connect-to-outlook/ […]
