Launch desktop app winword

I have a powerapp that lists documents in a sharepoint document library, using the url link to the file - when I launch the file from a button in my powerapp on a mobile phone it launchs winword to open the file. However, when using the powerapp in the browser (Edge) it launches Word Online, is there a way to force using the desktop app to open the document?

Yes, you can accomplish this by appending "s-word:ofe|u|" before your link.  Here's an example:

 

Launch("ms-word:ofe|u|"&ProposalsListGallery.Selected.'{Link}')
