"Open with" option for non-microsoft files
When trying to open a file that isn't OneNote, Word, Excel, or Powerpoint, it won't let you open the documents to edit them. Even files that belong to Microsoft Visio can't be opened. At least for my office we have Adobe products being used as well. Having a prompt come up for when app or program you want to use would be very useful. Also being able to save changes directly to the SharePoint library where the file originated. Downloading and reuploading in a creative environment with designers is a huge hassle.
+1 on this
Bump. This is a necessary function if we are to use teams/sharepoint as a replacement for a traditional file server. Having users download the files to manipulate without a directly link to "open with" leave possibility for file duplication and saving files in the wrong place. It breaks versioning if they must remember to check-in/check-out every time. They won't. they will work outside Sharepoint.
Bumping this, kind of a showstopper in transition from normal file server handling. Any news?

This would be highly appreciated! Including option to open the folder in file browser (is synced with the PC)

Agreed with the comments. This is becoming an increasing frustration when using Teams. We use MindJet's Mindmanager quite a bit and this is a real challenge.
Agree. Files generally have a default program based in their extension. Would be great if this could be used in the case of non Office file types. Open in SharePoint is clunky and I often have several accounts logged in on different browsers so might need to log of and back in with the Teams account. A context menu item for the particular file with an 'Open with' option would be very useful.

To edit a Visio stored on Teams I have to Right click > Open in Sharepoint > then in Sharepoint find the file again, right click and hit "Open in Visio" its very cumbersome.
yep - the PDF viewer is unusable, can't open / edit txt or visio files
