Product: Product Version:
Classification: Reproducible:
- Can there be a system level action on a NSFileProviderItem for "Open In App", so that the file can be opened in the main app of the File Provider Extension that provided it. That is so that we can give the user more options and information that the currently doesn't allow us to.

Steps to Reproduce:
If an user long presses an item from the, there are a bunch of system level actions that appear. It would be nice if there is a "Open in App" Action. That let's the main app for that extension show the user their preferred context for that file.

Expected Results:
That there is a "Open in App" Action there.

Observed Results:
It is not there
