Download or Open File

Occasional Contributor

Hello everyone,


I´m struggling with the download/ open setting within EDGE (81.0.416.68) 

a customer tried to download a RDP file from his sharepoint  

(file://company.local/dfs/Sharepoint_Links/compwin%20(Work%20Resources).rdp) and gets the  message: "about:blank#blocked" which made me pretty sure there must be something like blocked content or safe locations.

I´ve tried to reproduce that within my computer and our policies, which i couldn´t.

Instead i ran into the problem (at least for me it is)  that the browser doesnt ask me weather I wanted to save or download the content and opened it in the browser itself.

That doesnt make any sense for the RDP file which i wanted to download and run rather than see the text version of it (

screen mode id:i:2
use multimon:i:0
session bpp:i:32


I´ve created the key ExternalProtocolDialogShowAlwaysOpenCheckbox and set the setting to ask where to safe the downloaded files.


I also tried different locations (local, dfs,..)

Maybe it´s just monday and i cannot see what is obvious. Has anyone an idea?

Thanks very much for your input
