Windchill desktop integration basic settings/configuration

Hello all,

Hi Milan --

Yes! You can set this using the preference manager utility in Windchill:

From Windchill, go to Quick Links > My Settings > Preferences

The preference is available under Documents.


Right-click Default contexts under Windchill Documents in Windows Explorer.

Click Set Preference and set it to All

For information about all the configuration options, you can use the Windchill Help Center:

PTC Windchill Fundamentals > Working With Windchill Objects > Documents > Windchill Desktop Integration

User Setup and Troubleshooting

Configuration and Servers

Desktop Integration Preferences

(You'll need an eSupport login to access those links, or you can click any help icon in Windchill to open your local help center).
