The users do it in the desktop client > (...) Settings next to Avatar > General > Files (Scroll to bottom)

Hi, I now have this feature. I found the following:
When I open files in Team Channels - it does respect my choice.
When I open files in Chat - it does NOT respect my choice and always opens in Teams.
When I open files in "popped out" Chat - It does respect my choice.
When I open files from Search - it does NOT respect my choice and always opens in Teams.
Is it expected work like this? Or is it a bug that it fails to work in Chat (unless popped out) and search?

Why can't i choose App as default?!? Does microsoft not test their software before release? This has got to be the dumbest implementation of default app ever.
I dont want to open my files in the teams app. I dont want to open them in the annoying web app - i want to open my files in my desktop app - which we pay a dearly license for!!
How hard can this be? There surely is more to this than just code. Microsoft just doesnt want us to use the dekstop apps anymore must be the conclusion.

@Gustav_S If you are using the desktop client you should see the choice of the Desktop app in addition to Teams and Browser. However if you are accessing Teams via the browser you only you see the option for Teams and Browser.

Having the same issue here. Used to be able to default to the app. Now that option is gone... bizarro... and a total PITA

I have updated the app, but still i see no option 'Desktop app' in settings.
The thing is: i remember my Teams asking me some time ago to pick a default. This was probably when the feature becme available. And some of my colleagues have indeed set the default to desktop app. But: i was distracted at the time, and picked teams (silly me!)
So I really want to change the default to desktp app, but can't :(
I don't quite understand what you write about TAC. And i don't have an option > about > public preview. Do I understand correctly that I have to talk to our Admin, to enable this for us / me?
Thanks in advance :)
