How To Stop Internet Explorer Opening Office Documents In The Browser

By default, Internet Explorer opens Excel and Word files within the browser window. This can be annoying if you want to work with them in the real applications. To get IE to always open these files using the correct application:

click Start >> Control Panel >> Folder Options
click on the File Types tab
find the XLS file type in the list and click on it
click on the Advanced button
uncheck the “Browse in same window” option
click OK to close the Edit File Type dialog
find the DOC file type and repeat the above three steps
click OK to close the Folder Options dialog

p/s: this is the step in how to make the word or any ms document NOT to open inside the IE.
