  • Hi,

    For the setting of opening file in Internet Explorer, this would be configured by the Internet Explorer.

    To configure Internet Explorer to open Office files in the appropriate Office program by using the Folder Options tool:

    1.Open My Computer.

    2.On the Tools menu (or the View menu), click Folder Options (or click Options).

    3.Click the File Types tab.

    4.In the Registered file types list, click the specific Office document type (for example, Microsoft Excel Worksheet), and then click Advanced (or click Edit).

    5.In the Edit File Type dialog box, click to clear the Browse in same window check box (or click to clear the Open Web documents in place check box).

    6.Click OK.

    But this is for click to open, not click to download, you can disable the Office add-ons in Internet Explorer to check.

    Also, for this setting, it would related to the websites setting, you can contact the Office 365 support for further help.
