Clicking on RD Web Access RDP icon downloads a .RDP file

I have setup a Microsoft RD Web Access URL but when I login with Chrome and click on the RDP icon to open a session, a .rdp file is downloaded. I can run this file from the folder it was download to and login. But I would prefer clicking on the RDP icon opened immediately WITHOUT having to download the file. Is this possible?

So can the web rdp icon be opened within a browser without downloading it? If so, how?

Log in with IE and click on the RDP session to open an icon. Same steps you outlined above but using Chrome for a browser before trying to launch the RDP icon.
