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

Using Remote File Transfer, we can configure it to open document files such as Excel (.xlsx), Word (.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”
