Stop the presses: mega performance boost for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 on opening office documents, by using a Internet Explorer setting

We are using Microsoft SharePoint for our intranet since 2006, but users started to put there office documents local or on other products like TFS, NAS (File Share), just because opening a Microsoft Office document would take a lot of time (ranging from 10s to 2 minutes). The VISIO documents were the worst of all (always waiting for minutes before I could start working on the document, but then when I saved the Microsoft VISIO document I was waiting for minutes again).  So after being frustrated for over 4 years, here comes along our Microsoft SharePoint Administrator: Jan Willem Nieuwenhuizen, he did a google on it and found the solution:

Start Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings”:

Disable “Automatically detect settings”

Enable “Use a proxy server for LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections)”

Enable “Bypass proxy server for local addresses”

Enter *.* in the “Do not use proxy server for addresses beginning with”:
