Enable ClickOnce by default in Edge

Copper Contributor



We have a flagship product that uses ClickOnce for delivery to over 20,000 end users. 

In the latest Chrome-based Edge browser, ClickOnce is not longer turned on by default.  Our users have to manually set its flag to Enabled.  This approach causes a maintenance headache since many of our uses are not IT savy  enough to set a group policy to override this flag.


Is it possible in a future update of Edge to have this flag turned on by default?  Like the classic Edge browser and IE


Thank you

I second this.. I have a large public facing application and this change causes many extra step for our users. http://homedepot.bighammer.com. We used to have a single question the first time a users launches our application. Now they have to change settings and get prompted every launch even thought we are EV cert signed to avoid smart screen prompts.
