Save as dialogue for non-Microsoft applications does not allow saving to SharePoint

Copper Contributor

When you're in any Microsoft application, you can copy and paste the SharePoint web address and it navigates to that site in a few seconds.


However if you're in any other application, this error is displayed.  

Why is there a difference and/or can we get around this?

This will be due to the way the developers have implemented the file save as dialog box. The simplest work around is usually to add a OneDrive Short-cut, so you can navigate to the Library via Windows Explorer.
I understand this but hoped for a workaround. I don't want to encourage syncing of all files, because keeping our users in SharePoint means greater uptake of the additional features it brings.
