Lync Meetings Opening in Web App Instead of Lync Desktop

By March 3, 2015June 7th, 2022Blog

I recently ran in to an issue where several new Lync users with Chrome installed were having Lync Meetings open in the Lync Web App rather than the Lync Desktop application. In order to resolve this issue, we completed the following:

  1. Open Control Panel and select Default Programs
  2. Click Associate a File Type or Protocol with a Program
  3. Scroll through the list and look for the .ocsmeet extension/association and ensure that the default program that is opening it is Lync (desktop). If it isn’t highlight the extension and click Change Program, and select Lync (desktop) Click ok.

If this does not work, you may need to try uninstalling and reinstalling which will automatically restore all file associations with Lync.
