Excel hyperlinks to PDFs are opening in OneDrive

Occasional Visitor

I keep all of my university references in a spreadsheet with hyperlinks to the PDFs.  I usually use the PDF reader on Microsoft Edge to make notes/highlight.  I have learning needs & this makes it much easier for me to keep on top of my work.


However, since beginning to use OneDrive to store documents, the links now open in OneDrive (in browser).  They don't open the actual PDF, but go to this screen: https://onedrive.live.com/?id=root&cid=64E9D6581BC457%2E%2E%2E%2E%2E%2E.


When I open the links from that page, I cannot edit them and have to redownload them to edit & then resave into the file of the hyperlink.


I have tried the fix here (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/excel/pdf-hyperlinks-in-onedrive-are-opening-online/m-p/32775...) but it hasn't helped.


Please help
