    How can I stop Edge from prompting me to allow an app to open?

    I'm running Win 10 Pro, version 1909. MS Edge version 83.0.478.64.
    Using SQl Server Reporting Services.
    When I select to edit a report in Report Builder I get a popup - This site is trying to open Microsoft Report Builder. http://[servername] wants to open this application.
    I would really like to be able to be able to bypass this.
    I've tried the registry hack - adding the dword ExternalProtocolDialogShowAlwaysOpenCheckbox to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge (value of 1)
    and I've tried enabling 'Enable remembering protocol launch prompting preferences' from 'edge://flags'.
    neither of those has worked.
    Also, after I allow Report Builder to open, I also have another dialog box that says We're opening your report in Report Builder...did you run into issues? You'll need Report Builder installed on your computer.
    I have it installed and it works.
    I would really like to eliminate the need for all the added mouse clicks.

    Click Start button and click Control Panel.
    In the Control Panel, go to User Accounts and then click Change User Account Control settings.
    This will open up the User Account Control Settings window.

    In the User Account Control Settings window, you'll see a slider with four options.
    The default setting is the second-highest option -
    the top setting is Always notify
    (you'll get notifications whenever an app tries to make changes to your computer,
    or if you make changes to Windows settings),
    while the bottom setting is Never notify (you will never get notifications, ever).

    I suggest choosing one of the middle two settings -
    either the default setting or the second-lowest setting
    which will notify you just as much as the default setting but will not dim your screen to do so.
    Choose the setting you want and press OK.

    No matter what choice you make,
    you will see a UAC pop-up window asking if you want to allow this app
    Its a security feature to click to allow changes -
    You really need to be notified that a program/app is about to make changes to your computer.

    Thanks for the idea, but the UAC is already all the way down, and the site has been added to the Trusted Sites.
