I recently modified settings at the list level to force documents to open on the client. After I tested the behavior while logged in as an Admin and it seemed to work fine.
Today however an end user with only reader permissions was still experiencing the same documents that I tested opening in their browser.
After this I decided to force documents to open at the Site Collection level. Even then the behavior didn't change for the end user but for me (Admin) it opens in the client as it should.
I created and logged in under a separate account with viewer permissions and tested it also, and it was still opening in the browser.
Has anybody experienced this or does anybody have a solution?
