How to open a visio file from onedrive directly without saving it in my local computer. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there,

    I have one visio file located in OneDrive. I want it to open directly in Internet explorer 9 after clicking on the link. I have visio viewer ready in my computer. Problem is that the visio file is getting downloaded after clicking on the link. Then if I click on the downloaded visio file it is getting opened in internet explorer 9. I don't want to downlaod the file. I want to visio file get opened directly internet explorer just like online office web apps. I have checked it IE11 as well as IE9 but both of them exhibiting same behavior. Please help.

    Kind Regards,

    Supriyo Manna

  • Hi,

    I am afraid at this stage it is not possible to do what you want to do.....

    Your one-drive is a dumb storage system, unlike a sharepoint server one-drive does not control over the content disposition of the returned file stream. All files are returned with a binary header....

    The latest Office versions may have improved on this...
