Enforce internal/external open of a link?

If I have a file extension registered among those to open internally (Tools/Options/Browser/File extensions to display in internal browser view), is there an easy way to enforce opening a particular file link with an external application, pls?

And vice versa? If a file extension is not listed among those to open internally, can I still somehow enforce a particular linked file to be opened internally?

Many thanks in advance!

To open any item externally, press Ctrl+J or Item | Open Document. To prevent internal display for a single item that is configured for internal viewing, hold down the Alt key when selecting it.

There is not a way to open internally without adding the file extension to the desired viewing option in UR.

Thank you very much for your kind reply!

Everything works as you described except for the Ctrl+J shortcut. It works great on a text item, but a linked .xls will not open externally using Ctrl+J. It's not much of a problem though, because RMB Item/Open Document still works on this item.

Best regards!
