Can not save a document back into document library in SharePoint

In a SharePoint 2010, when I tried to create a new document within a document library. I found out it has been saved on the local PC rather than saved directly on the SharePoint document library !

This is my scenario :

  • I opened a document library.
  • I clicked on a new word document. > Type data > Save.

The Save As dialog asking for a save location that point to a local drive on my local computer! where it’s should be the path of parent SharePoint document library.

Cause:

The WebClient feature was stopped or not installed on each WFE SharePoint Server in the farm.

Solution:

  • Open Web-Front-End Server and press Ctrl+R and type Services.msc.

  • Reboot your server and try again .

Note : Repeat the previous steps for each WFE Server on your farm.

The document should be now saved directly on SharePoint document library.
