Microsoft Edge - Opening Office Documents via Blackboard
Posted by Casey Spencer on 02/02/22 4:24 PM

ATTENTION Microsoft Edge Users:


When clicking on an Office type file document link in Blackboard and receiving an error message (404 not found).


The workarounds are:

  1. Don't use Edge (Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome are the preferred web browsers for Blackboard use)
  2. To make Edge stop opening your Office files, click the three dots on the top right corner > Settings > Downloads > Turn off the option "Open Office files in the browser".


This is not a Blackboard issue.
