Different format of .csv file in Excel online VS Excel desktop app

Occasional Visitor

Hello everyone, good afternoon! Does anyone know why when I open a .csv file in Excel online it shows in one way (the correct one actually) but when I try to open the same file in Excel desktop app, it returns incorrect format (please see the screenshot - the bigger excel is Online version and the smaller is the desktop app)? I have tried in MacOs, Windows 10 + office, Windows 7 + office... all same results.

Perhaps you have different regional setting for the cloud (comma as list separator) and for computer OS:s (semicolon as list separator)
