I am running Win 11 with Office 365 (16.0) and have links to local files in a PowerPoint. 

How can I get rid of the warning I get when I try to open a local link("Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer...") ?

 

I went into the Trust Center and added the local directories the files are in, but that didn't help.

There isn't an option to suppress the warning the 2nd time.

 

Suggestions?
