I found this guide that details how to enable the OpenInClient feature for a Sharepoint Online site collection and have a few questions. 

 

Can this be selectively enabled on certain personal sites?

 

Will this do what I expect, and force Office docs to open in a desktop client?

 

What will happen if the user does not have Office installed? Will it fall back to using Office Online?

 

Thanks!

Whoops, just realized I posted this in the admin center space. Can I move this?
