Connections Desktop Plug-In for Microsoft Windows - allow viewing Community Files from Excel, Powerpoint, Word - "Open"

Using the Connections Desktop Plug-In for Microsoft Windows allows working with Files, e.g. from the File Component as well as  Files within a Community.

When the user has opened Excel, Powerpoint or Word and he will open a new file from the File - Context Menu of this app, the user can only open Files from the MyDrive Folder but not from the Connections Folder.

My customer requested to be able opening files from within the Office Tools with the same view as it is in the Windows Explorer.
