Allow Sharepoint to Open HTML pages in Browser
Our team has been using Sharepoint for years. Recently, we decided to move to 365 Platform as it has better user interface:
Having said that we were disappointed to see that Sharepoint 365 does not show html pages, instead it opens up the html in a text editor.
And if we wish to share the link as a read only, then the link will download a html file (on each time when the link is clicked). Really annoying !!!
We came across this, too. It is strict file handling, an option set at the SP web application level. I have not tried in SPO, bt in on-prem you may name your HTML file with an .aspx extension and it will load in the browser. However, depending on the number of files that you have, it may not be practical even if it does work in SPO.
Is there any workaround
