When I go to a slack link in chrome, the page attempts to launch my slack desktop app.

For example loading a link like this in chrome: https://box.slack.com/archives/CXXJDXXXX/pXXXX61509300XXXX

Takes me to a page like enter image description here

Even though I do not have the slack desktop app installed, there is still an attempt to launch the slack desktop app.

How can I by default avoid launching the slack desktop app from chrome ?

PS: I think at some point I clicked on something saying "By default always launch the desktop app". How can I change the default behavior again ?
