SharePoint 2013 Disable Prompts for User Credentials when opening Office files

Probably most of us have experienced this! Very annoying!

The solution is to:

IE -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Security Tab -> Click on 'Local Intranet' -> Sites -> Make sure that 'Automatically detect intranet network' is checked.

Now switch to 'Trusted sites' -> Sites -> add your intranet site [if having one web application like me, just add the domain root e.g.].
Staying in 'Trusted sites', click on 'Custom level...', scroll down to the bottom and check 'Automatic logon with current user name and password' as in picture below:

Annoying pop-ups for user credentials should no longer be coming up!
