I'm testing from a Windows 10 20H2 system, Edge 89.0.774.63.
I've come across this link which describes a group policy that should allow you to enable the ability to "Save Target As" in IE mode, however I'm still seeing this as unavailable.
I have the policy set on this device, and I see the registry setting for it active.
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode\AllowSaveTargetAsInIEMode = 1
The context menu is still greyed out for the option

@Jeffrey_Fronius Hello! I just talked to the IE mode team and hopefully we can help!
Taking a look at your screenshot, it looks like the MS Edge context menu. When a page is loaded in IE mode, if you right click on a link on the page, you should see the following context menu with the "Save target as..." option.
Please give this a try!

@Jeffrey_Fronius Hello! I did a little more digging and I can see that we've just released a Windows Update that will allow you to use Ctrl+S to save the page in IE mode.
Here is a link to the article: March 29, 2021—KB5000842 (OS Builds 19041.906 and 19042.906) Preview (microsoft.com)
It is mentioned under "Improvements and fixes"
I believe the new policy is Enable IE mode Hotkeys. Please give that a try! Thanks!

@Jeffrey_Fronius Yes, you are correct the update was to enable CTRL+S to be used in IE mode. The right click context menu behavior has not changed.
I did take a look and I believe the update was serviced back to Windows Server version 1809. Like you have seen, I don't think prior versions were included.

@Jeffrey_Fronius Hello! Currently I do not see any information about servicing this back to Server 2012 R2. I believe if you reach out to Support (https://microsoftedgesupport.microsoft.com/hc/en-us)
they can work with you to understand business impact and discuss with the Servicing Team if there are any options.
