Windows Defender Application Guard - opening files

Occasional Contributor

How do I configure Windows Defender Application Guard in order to open Microsoft Office files? 


The only way I have found so far is to enable the policy '

Allow files to download and save to the host operating system from Windows Defender Application Guard '.  


Is there a way to open MS Office files within the WDAG session without saving the to the host operating system?


Many thanks

Windows Defender Application Guard currently support Internet Explorer and only way to run app in protected environment is what you did.

There is plan for Application Guard for Microsoft Office which is under preview:
