Edge OneDrive PWA office files immersive reader

Copper Contributor



I'm using OneDrive PWA in Edge.


When opening Office files, it always starts the immersive reader.


Is it possible to disable it, so that the default behavior is to open the Office files in a new browser tab?


Thank you

There's a setting in Downloads to open Office files in the browser. Does turning that off make any difference?
Hello Josh,
Edge behavior changes, but OneDrive PWA on Edge does still open the files in the immersive reader by default.
Ah, that makes sense, you're probably not actually downloading the files from the OneDrive app; you're likely just clicking on a link that's opening immediately, right? What happens if you instead click the ... by the file and Download it?
