When I open any link to an Office document, like .doc or .ppt, ChromeOS automatically opens the file in Quickoffice Viewer. I would like to save the file locally so that I can add it to Google Docs, but Quickoffice deletes the file as soon as the Quickoffice tab is closed. Quickoffice's Save As option only saves as mhtml. Trying to access the file while Quickoffice has it open does not work because the app changes the extension of the file to .webintents.
I have tried removing the Quickoffice Viewer extension, but Chrome just displays an error and deletes the downloaded file.
In some cases I can right click and choose Save Link As..., but in many cases the file is automatically generated by a website, so the link is to an aspx page that creates the file and not to the .ppt.
Is there a way to not preview an Office file that is generated dynamically, and to instead save it to the disk on ChromeOS?
