Open files in local app by default
It would be nice if there was an option to permit opening files in the local app, instead of rendering into a web viewer automatically.

Halleluja. This is needed. Opening files in Teams is useless and i want to change the default to open in app.
Absolutely agree! I NEVER use the web-based app and it kills productivity to have so many clicks to get files open in regular apps. I'm happy others are raising this concern.
Agree, it could be more beneficial for us too, have the option to choose a pdf reader
Agree. I spend my time in excel, visio & powerpoint ... and the web versions of those are limited and slow.
This would not be such a big issue if the teams document viewer wasn't so unusable.
Yes, annoyingly this is a configuration setting already in SharePoint but just isn't picked up in Teams atm. Should be a pretty simple fix.

Agree. It will be nice if I could open the file from my desktop default app (eg I could open DWG files by my CAD software) instead of opening a web browser.
