Windows 10: Windows 10 Home. Disable this file came from another computer. Solved

    Windows 10 Home. Disable this file came from another computer.


    I am just going to say up front that I don't have the Pro version of Windows 10 so I have no Group Policy Editor otherwise I would have fixed this problem in less than a minute instead of wasting over a hour trying to fix this.

    I want to disable this on the screenshot for any future files I download. I searched online but every post says I have to use gpedit.msc which I don't have. I am getting very frustrated. I don't want to mess around in the registry. Some one just link a .reg file to disable this annoyance so I can just import it and be done.

    Did not work. I am still getting this file came from on newly download files. If I still had pro I would have fixed this in less than a minute instead of wasting nearly 2 hours Googling which lead nowhere.

    What do you mean IF you still had PRO, did you lose it somehow upgrading to 10?

    When I had Windows 8.1 Pro on my laptop (came with Windows 7 upgraded to Windows 8 Pro which Microsoft gave anyone upgrading) I turned off this annoyance in less than a minute using Group Policy editor. Now with Home it is impossible. I got a desktop later I am using now that came with Home. I only got home because I though Microsoft was going to upgrade everyone to Windows 10 Pro like they did with Window 8. Biggest mistake ever I should have gotten Windows 8 Pro when I got the desktop from Dell.

    Since your not happy with Home, you could upgrade to Pro.

    I fixed it. After much Googling I found this post.
    To disable blocking when files are downloaded, open the following registry key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments\SaveZoneInformation
    Change SaveZoneInformation to 1.
    NOTE:

    • 0 = Not Configured
    • 1 = Enabled
    • 2 = Disabled
    It did not help much at first because it did not say what key you needed for SaveZoneInformation but after trying all of them DWORD 32 bit Value data 1 Hexadecimal worked. I am now going to export this key and back it up so if I have to reinstall windows at anytime I don't have to waste 2 hours trying to figure it out again.

    Update: Chrome was still blocking files so I did a restart now Chrome is no longer blocking files.

    Anyway thanks for your help even though I have not been in the greatest mood. You are all great.

    Thanks but the only thing I need to do in Group Policy Editor is this tweak and to disable the lock screen which Winaero tool lets you do so it is not worth it. I don't use any other Pro feature like encryption.

    OIC thought maybe something had gone wrong in the upgrade. Yep now you have to buy the upgrade to Pro
