Editing a shared document in Teams

Occasional Contributor

I have a shared in Teams, but when I go to open the document using "Open in Desktop"  it only provides me a "read only"  and will not allow me to edit.  Previously I was able to edit a document when in Teams or using the desktop version.  Now whether it is a Word or PowerPoint document, I am only able to edit in Teams.  Has anyone else came across this issue?  If, Yes, how did you correct the issue?

Hi @neitra

What if you sync the document library in Teams to your local desktop and open the document via explorer?

Here is a guide to help if you don't know how to do that

Thank you, I will have my user try this and let you know if it works.
