Whenever I try to open an XML file with Office XML Handler, I have this window coming back every time
If I remember correctly, the XML files opened with the default browser with this setting,
With Edge Canary, it does not work
Is it related to Edge Canary ?
Thanks for your help

Edge canary does have issues with XML
for example saving this as an .XML file and dragging on Edge canary shows some error
instead of showing the content, it tires to find the mistakes in the XML file which is not what i want.
opening it in IE however is totally fine.
and my Windows settings

Ok, it's a problem with Canary, so ?
And if I open with Canary, I have this message "This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below." (above the contents of the file)
Yes, I checked this box and still ask me to select office XML handler every time

Yes of course feedback is a good way,
but the thing is I'm not sure what the problem is exactly,
you can set Edge insider to be the default XML opener using this method (which i think you already know)
Click on "look for another app on this PC"
and browse for the Edge insider browser location,
mine is here for Canary:
once you do that, Edge will be available in the list and will appear like this:
Now all you have to do is to Select Edge and after that check the box that says "always use this app to open .XML files.
then all XML files on your computer will correctly get Edge icon
about the error when showing XML files, it only happens when the XML file is Not properly formatted according to the W3C standards, but if you use correct XML files like these examples then they open fine in browsers.

Yes I tested this (indicated Edge as the default program) and the layout of the XML file is horrible and I have this message above the content
"This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below."
For example :
No problem with IE

You don't have to worry about it ^^
The message isn't an "error" but rather a warning and need not be solved but ignored. An XML document is a data structure but does not contain any presentation/style information internally. Normally an XML document is used in inter-application communication or as a pure data structure that is then used with additional presentation/style information to display to users.
XML can be applied style by XSLT just as HTML by CSS and the above warning can be eradicated

Ok thanks for the explanation but the "formatting" is just horrible compared to IE for example
And I do not like to have an error or warning message, for me it's that something is wrong :)
I would watch with Google Chrome see how it's
And for XML files that does not open, I'll indicate it by feedback, so
