    Can’t open bin by clicking .avb file

    Hi, I'm coming from a mac where we would frequently email someone a file path to a shared bin, and could then click on that bin in the finder to quickly open it in avid (without having to go through the "open bin" menu). Now I'm in an office that uses windows and this doesn't seem to work. We're on windows 8.1 pro and running MC 8.8.5. Right-clicking on bins shows that they are set to open with Avid Media Composer, but when I double click them nothing happens. Is there a setting to change this behavior?

    There isn't a setting for this. It just doesn't work on windows that way.

    The closest I can come is to copy the link url. Then in MC use open bin and paste the link in there to access the bin
