Alfresco – Desktop Action
How’s your Alfresco doing?
In my case, we’re going for implementation after weeks of testing and some modifications.
Well, I don’t want to see those CheckIn/Checout in every folder (and my user’s agree with me). My users keeps asking me about it (wishper: I changed the File Server for some users without their knowledge for testing. Don’t do this or your head will ROLL!). For them Alfresco is like the same Windows File Server. I like it that way for simplicity and I will introduce more functionality when we role out the entire Alfresco system.
NOTE: To disable the feature, you have to put a comment on each property.

1st – I want to change the Alfresco name into my company name.
Crate a file /opt/alfresco/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/webclient_en_US.properties and put your company name
# cd /opt/alfresco/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/
# vi webclient_en_US.properties
company_home=Your Company Name
2nd – disable the URLFileName and the Desktop actions. These are the extra files that you see in every folder and everytime you create a folder. For me I don’t see them helping my users to deal with their files/folder.
Edit the /opt/alfresco/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/subsystems/fileServers/default/file-servers-context.xml
# cd /opt/alfresco/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/subsystems/fileServers/default
# vi file-servers-context.xml
Look for the following and comment it like below
<!– Add a URL file to each folder that links back to the web client –>
and for Desktop Actions
Restart your Alfresco and check your alfresco in windows file explorer.
How was it? Now, it’s just like the old Windows File Server right?!
