Activate the Office Web Apps feature on all site collections

Office Web Apps require that the Office Web Apps feature be activated on every site collection for which the Web apps will be available. Activate the Office Web Apps feature for all site collections by running the following script:

$webAppsFeatureId = $(Get-SPFeature -limit all | where {$_.displayname
-eq "OfficeWebApps"}).Id
Get-SPSite –limit ALL |foreach{
enable-SPFeature $webAppsFeatureId –url $_.URL }

Additional configuration (optional)

After activating Office Web Apps, the Default click feature in SharePoint Server will point to the Office Web Apps instead of the Office client application. You can override this functionality in SharePoint Server at the site collection and document library levels. The following Windows PowerShell scripts provide examples on how to change the default click behavior for each level:

Site collection – This example disables the Default click setting at all site collections:

$webAppsFeatureId = $(Get-SPFeature -limit all | where {$_.displayname
-eq "OpenInClient"}).Id
Get-SPSite –limit ALL |foreach{
Enable-SPFeature $webAppsFeatureId –url $_.URL }

Document library – This example disables the Default click setting at all document libraries in site1:

Get-SPWeb –site http://foo/sites/site1 |% {}{$_.Lists}{$_.Update()} |% {$_.DefaultItemOpen = $false}
