Apparently I'm the only one noticing this because I can't find ANYTHING on the web. So when I select "Open in Desktop App" from an office online file while using Chrome...I get this window:

End users are wondering how to bypass this. What's the deal? Anyone?

I am having the same problem.  Just started today.  Hadnt had any problem in the past.  And when I try to log in with my credentials; it says Im already logged on on this pc.  I can get the files to open into word desktop app.
