MS Edge 86.0.622.43 - How to remember this site is trying to open word

Occasional Contributor



Would someone know how to get around the issue where each time you open a document from on-prem (or online) SharePoint you get the following message

This site is trying to open Word wants to open this application.


I have added the following regkey but this has not had any affect

Value Name: ExternalProtocolDialogShowAlwaysOpenCheckbox 

Value Data: 1


I have not got any option to remember and therefore each time I open a document it opens with this warning. 

Is there a a way to add internal URLs to bypass this message or even External links. 

I have checked the the ADMX template but cannot find anything suitable. 


Any help on this would be appreciated.
