Hi @cpascparaacom , you are welcome to the Microsoft Edge Insider Community Hub!

If you want to stop seeing the prompt which asks whether to open, save, or save as the files. Go to the settings page then downloads section or directly copy and paste this URL in the address bar given in brackets (edge://settings/downloads) and then turn "Ask me what to do with each download" toggle off.

Misunderstanding: it's not the open, save, save as prompt that I want to disable. It's the warning that asks if you want to keep or delete because it might be a dangerous file . I don't think it's Windows security doing this because I don't get that prompt when downloading the same file from other browsers.
