There are cases when you would want the users to open Office files into the client application.
SharePoint Online 2010 offers a very easy solution for this „problem”.

How ?

  • access the desired document library;
  • from the Library tab click on Library Settings;

  •  from the settings menu, click on Advanced settings;

  •  in the Opening Documents in the Browser  section add a tick on Open in the client application option and then save all changes.

From now on, every time an user will try to open a document from this library, the document will be opened into the client application.
