How to access Salesforce Files without Chatter enabled?

We have recently enabled support for Salesforce Files in our app however some of our clients do not want to enable Chatter for some users.

It seems enabling Chatter is a requirement to use Salesforce Files.

Our only solution appears to be to restrict those clients to only use Attachments rather than Salesforce Files.

Has anyone found a way around this?

As a developer I don't seem to be able to log a ticket with Salesforce to request this enhancement.  I am a newbie so maybe I just haven't been able to find the right channel. (And apologies if I have posted this in the wrong forum).

Your help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Dan

Because you might have enabled Profile-Based Chatter Rollout, you can't access Salesforce files without chatter. but there is a workaround, you can enable chatter and take out the chatter tab access and feed on the page layouts, visit more details => Access Salesforce Files without chatter after enabling Profile-Based Chatter Rollout (https://www.forcetrails.com/2022/03/access-files-without-chatter-profile-based-rollout.html)
