Hi,

 

I`m using an Apple ipad with Teams installed as an app. If someone sends a html document in a Teams chat, it opens it as a text document rather than in Safari.

 

I`ve searched but can`t find where to associate .html files with Safari. 


Any ideas? 


Thanks

Hi James.  As far as I am aware, file associations cannot be set by users within iOS.  I tested the same and found that html files will open as text doc.

@PeterRising Thanks for the reply. 

 

Thought this might be the case. I`ll see if i can work around this issue. 


Thanks
