    Copy and paste into a file. Rename the extension as .reg, double click to merge into registry:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\{E2F13B98-650F-47DB-845A-420A1ED34EC7}User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations]
    "LowRiskFileTypes"=".exe;.bat;.cmd;.vbs"

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations]
    "LowRiskFileTypes"=".exe;.bat;.cmd;.vbs"

    I am not sure if you've done it correctly. Here is the zip file. Unzip and try again.

    Sory to revive this old thread, but I'm having a similar problem. I copied a bunch of links (*.lnk) from my previous W7 machine and I'm getting the same message. The Security warning appears to be flagging the *.lnk files, though the pointers are to pdfs and txt files on my internal network. I've set the intranet security to low, turned off smartscreen (so I get the perpetual "you may die and detsroy the earth without smartscreen" in my notification center), and run the powershell unblock-file option on the folder that contains the links, all to no avail.

    As with the original poster, there is no checkbox in the alert dialog as shown in the "Unblock File in Windows 10" link. Also, as with the original poster, the file's location is in my Favorites / Favorites Bar folder.

    I have not implemented the registry hack because that seems like globally allowing all of the stated filetypes to run without a check is a poor way to set a local file on a local network as safe (and I presume wouldn't work unless added *.lnk to the list anyway).

    Is there any way to determine how/why the file is being considered "from the internet" and change that (ownership?) to get around the problem. I'd prefer not to recreate all of my reference literature links (and potentially have to do it every single time I might need to install the OS). Under ownership, it shows that my user and system are granted full control to the link files.
