Hi @dF9JYLaf ,

That works when I create a document inside one of the teams that I have.
However,
- I want to create a document that is not tied to a specific Team but let's say on my desktop, how will I do that?
- How to create non-MS documents from within MS Team?

Thank you.

Do you mean you just want create documents in your desktop, right? And what is your format of document?

How to create non-MS documents from within MS Team?

Do you mean you want to create the third-party documents(such as WPS) in Teams client. If you answer is yes, I think it is no way to complete it.

Hi @JimmyYang-MSFT
- Yes, to create a TXT or a PDF document from within MS Teams, how to do that, please?
- I want to create TXT or CSV, PDF type of files, is it possible to do that from within MS Teams?

Thank you.

I believe it is not possible to create other type of documents from WITHIN Teams applications. Only Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio files are supported.

As for second query. I am not sure if this is what you want but you can sync folder in Teams with your OneDrive. That way files would be accessible offline from folder on your computer and when you are online changes synced with Teams - but I think you would need to sync each channel separately - not sure if there is way to sync whole Teams documents library. And this way you can create other file types directly through Windows Explorer, i.e. txt, zip, etc.
