File Rename Causes File to not honor "Open in Application" Sharepoint Settings

I have a flow that renames a file after it is created.  The flow appears to work fine but after the rename the file will not open in the desktop application.  The site and library are set to open in desktop apps.  The file works fine before the flow is run so I know it is the file rename.  After the rename clicking the file will only attempt to open in the browser.  You can click download and it opens and the file appears okay.  

 

Anyone have any hints about rename a file in MS Flows that would create this situation?

 

No sure which part of my flow to post to start the topic off.

Turn out it was just the view.

 

There are three different Name columns for a view.  I had used "Name(for use in forms)" and that was the issue. 

 

Switching to the "Name(linked to document with edit menu)" fixed the issue.
