Opening HTML File Troubles


I have a question that I could not find the answer to and was wondering if someone would be able to help me.  have an HTML file in a document library that does not load css or images properly in SharePlus. It works just fine on desktop SharePoint and when I open the HTML file in SharePlus using Web, it loads images and css just fine. 

So the question is, is there a way to force the file to open using Web in SharePlus while still letting desktop users access the file. I know that you can use navigation actions and put "InWeb" at the end of the link to make it open that way but then the link will not work properly for desktop users. I would rather not have two different links, one for desktop and one for mobile, as this would not bring the user experience that I am looking for. Having two links to every file make links in web pages look very messy. 

This might be a long shot but I have spent hours trying to figure out a seamless way of making this happen so any help is appreciated.

The filename must be If you navigate to the SharePoint location where the, long tap on the file and set it as Home, you will be able to see the page normally.

    There are two options there as well, the Application Home sets the page in the navigation bar on the left-hand side of SharePlus. On the contrary, setting as home for “This Site”, what it does is to load the as the home of the site that is added under Content, which was used to navigate to the

    Give it a try and let me know how it went.
