How to make RemoteApp opens document files (.xlsx, .docx, .pdf) with client side application

* For .xlsx extension (Excel):

Modify or create HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\.xlsx\shell\open\command

Default=RemFileTransfer.exe “%1”

 

* For .docxx extension (Word):

There are 2 places to modify in the server registry:
HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\.docx  and
HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\docxfile

Rename (don’t edit) them to: 
HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\.docx_bak
HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\docxfile_bak 

Then recreate the same registry keys:
HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\.docx\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\docxfile\shell\open\command
and set Default value to: RemFileTransfer.exe “%1”
