Launch email msg file from PowerBI


I imported 2 document libraries in power BI desktop. 

incoming emails are stored in the parent library and the attachments are stored in the child library.

i use a table to display Name , Year, Month and Type (library metadata that are used for searching)

Is there a way to Lauch selected msg file and open it? Or access the attachments from power BI desktop?

I have created a custom column and used concatenante function to create the URL. I also found out how to dislay the link icon.

Is there a way to select the link icon and Launch let's say a word document (the email attachment) without having to download it.

The method i used downloads the file locally.
