Open .xlsx files automatically on Mac using Safari
Posted on 2014-02-10
We have a simple Intranet with lots of .xlsx files (basically a file server but users access via links). I know, it's a horrible design but the CFO demands we keep it in place. In the past, he was using Windows and when he clicked on the link, it would automatically open the file. Now he has a Mac and when he clicks on the link, it downloads to a folder (and he has to manually go into that folder and open the file). I know this is by design (Safari safe list) but is there a way around it? I read something about adding a .plist file into the preferences folder but that didn't work for me. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
