Open excel/pdf files with Windows designated apps

Brave does not open or ask to open excel/pdf files in the designated app. I have to open it in Brave, save it, then open it with the appropriate app.

Click or download any file.

The files are listed in the banner on the bottom. It just causes way too many steps.

Ask to Open or Save the file.

Every freaking time.

Windows 10 Pro 64, Version 1.10.97 Chromium: 83.0.4103.116 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Hi @b3bt459,
Can you go to brave://settings/content/pdfDocuments and enable Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Brave - does this help your work flow?
