how to set use Office application to sync office files that I open

Hi
I like to force people to have one option enabled in OneDrive, "use Office application to sync office files that I open". According the Microsoft customer support, this option no exists. Wheder in the GPO nor in as registry. Is there another possibility to set this programmatically? Else it would be grate to integrate it to the GPO or registry.

Best regards Simon

In my opinion, currently we could not force users to enable this option, even if the related policy "Coauthor and share in Office desktop apps" is enabled, users can still untick this option in their OneDrive interface later.

We could force users to disable "Use Office application to sync office files that I open" via disabling this group policy.
