PDF Hyperlinks (in onedrive) are opening online

Regular Visitor


I have an excel table with many pdf links, all stored in onedrive.

Everytime i want to open a link, it goes to browser and opens onedrive folder online then opens pdf file in onedrive view.

I need them to just quickly open locally in Acrobat reader.

This is where it sends me everytime i click on a pdf link:


I just want it to open the file on my pc not online in a browser. It is very inconvenient and takes 5 seconds to open a pdf.

Is that possible?

I'm using latest version of Excel 365 on Windows 10.

Maybe it helps...

a) Go to your OneDrive icon, which is usually located in the bottom right corner.
b) Right-click and select Settings.
c) You will see several taps in the settings window. Select the Office tab
d) You will see a checkmark appear on "Office *version* to sync...".
e) Unmark and press OK.


Hope I could help you with these information.
