    Then user can go to the Data Browser, which should open this transaction with the GUI Windows to this system. 
    But it offers user the download for the shortcut File instead, which user can "open File" and then the SAPGUI windows opens correctly. 
    But user expects that it should launch to SAPGUI automatically. 
  • when opening SAPGUI with SAP shortcut from Portal with Edge browser, it just downloads the shortcut file with .sap file extension instead of opening it directly.
