    Stop Edge blocking downloads


    Edge keeps blocking downloads and I have to select keep from pull down menu.

    I know it is not Defender, as Chrome is fine.

    I cannot find a setting to stop this annoying behaviour.

    Anybody know how to stop this?

    Try Edge...Settings...Privacy...Security... turn off "block potentially unwanted apps".

    Hmm, try turning Smart screen on, but leave block potentially unwanted apps off. If that doesn't work I have a feeling this is MS dev being overtly nanny, might change in later builds.

    I haven't found a way to stop the warning if downloading executables.

    It's not much hassle to click "Keep"
