Disable PDF viewer in Modern User Interface SharePoint 2019 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been testing SharePoint 2019 and I have a question related to Modern User Interface PDF Viewer Configurations.

    On my SharePoint 2019 On-Premise environment, I have Office Web Apps Configured but we don’t want to Open PDF in the Office Web-App, we want to open it in the Client Application. 

    In the previous SharePoint versions, I used the commands below:

    • Get-SPWOPIBinding –Application "WordPDF" | Remove-SPWOPIBinding -Confirm:$false

    • Did an IIS reset.

    • Cleared browser Cache.

    The PDF opened in Client Application for SharePoint Classic User Interface but in Modern User Interface it opens in default PDF Viewer(screenshot below). 

    I want the PDF to open it Client application, even for the Modern User interface. Any PowerShell Command a SharePoint setting I am missing?
