Allow option to open file in Excel Desktop instead of Excel Online when sharing links

Excel online does not offer all the functionality of Excel desktop version, E.g. lacking macros/VBA, and the formatting often looks incorrect and unprofessional (Date formats incorrect and worksheets not opening with cell set to A1/halfway down the page despite the original file definitely set to A1 - amongst many other issues).

My colleagues and many others just want a simple option to allow opening a shared file in desktop Excel rather than Excel Online by default! Please allow us this very simple request, as it is stopping us from utilising many potential benefits of Office 365!
