    If this can't be done, then there should be an option to save the preference with the file attributes, so that a file which will always be used on the PC (often by a single user) can be set to open with the PC desktop program, rather than wasting time cycling while it attempts to open in online, then fails & asks if I want to open it with the desktop version. These are supposed to be "productivity" applications, not TIME WASTERS.
