    Hi,
     
    I have a problem with the "Always ask before opening this type of file" function in Internet Explorer 11 and Windows 8.1.

    The problem is; when the Citrix receiver from Windows store is configured to open ICA files and we log into a webinterface or storefront server in IE, users  is prompted to either Open, Save or Cancel the ica file. I am not able to uncheck the "Always ask before opening this type of file" after downloading the file. I can do thios on other file types like 7z Files. For me it seems like Windows have a whitelist of safe files, and .ica is not one of them.

    Is there a way to be able to have .ica files to open auto, without the plugin in IE?

    I have a web application which is not Edge compatible & when launched in IE11 displays badly formatted and skewed text. I've found manually adding the site URL to Compatibility View Settings resolved the messy text issue and I know through use of EMSL we can force sites to open in IE11 even when attempting to browse with Edge.

    I need to have it set so that the site URL is automatically applied to all users in Compatibility View by default so that they don't have to manually add it themselves. My understanding is that Compatibility View is an emulation of legacy IE8 settings. I know that the EMSL is recognising our site correctly because it forces opening in Edge - so we know its being picked up,  but I've tried setting the URL in an EMSL to IE7 & IE8 compatibility mode, but the text issue still persists.

    Can someone please help with automatically applying Compatibility View for users for this site? Below is an example of what I've tried. The website is in the format "hostservername:portnumber"; I've tried just the host server name without the port just in case and it makes no difference. Below is my .xml code for EMSL - I've tried both "IE8" & "IE8Enterprise" but it makes no difference:

    <site-list version="1"> 

      <created-by> 

        <tool>EMIESiteListManager</tool> 

        <version>10.0.14357.1004</version> 

        <date-created>01/01/2017 01:01:01</date-created> 

      </created-by> 

      <site url="hostservername:port"> 

        <compat-mode>IE8Enterprise</compat-mode>  *Also tried IE8 on its own but makes no difference*

        <open-in>IE11</open-in> 

      </site>

    My webshop is marked as unsafe (phishing which is not true) in Microsoft Edge, if switch to IE and run Smart Screen security check it says all safe. And strangely only on one of my computers and therefore didn't bother much but also a customer complained about it today. My site is 4x4offroad.se

    Anyone experienced this before and have a solution?
    Is there a way to check why a site is marked as unsafe by smartscreen?

    I use the following Powershell code to configure the IE Home Pages:

    ## Set Internet Explorer Home Pages in registry
    Write-Verbose "Setting Internet Explorer Home Pages"
    $HPKey = "HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\main"
    $URL1 = "http://www.williamblair.com"
    $URL2 = "http://www.wbremote.com"
    
    Start-Process iexplore.exe
    Stop-Process -ProcessName iexplore
    
    Set-ItemProperty -Path $HPKey -Name "Start Page" -Value $URL1
    Set-ItemProperty -Path $HPKey -Name "Secondary Start Pages" -Value $URL2

    Everything gets set correctly, but when i first start IE, I get extra tabs that open up with strange Chinese characters in them in addition to the home pages I select.  

    Anyone have any ideas why this happens?

    I successfully use Enterprise mode for managing Intranet sites.

    As known Enterprise mode is intended for Intranet sites.

    Would it manage non Intranet - Public sites?

    Thanks.

    I just installed IE9 (public release), and I'm seeing a pop-up at the bottom of the browser window that states:

    "The 'Virtual Storage Mount Notification' add-on from 'EldoS Corporation' is ready for use."

     

    Does anyone know what this is exactly?

    This is our situation:

    OS: Windows 10 Build 1803
    Domain Controllers: Window 2008

    We are trying to set the following key to the value of 3:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\4\1A10

    We are also setting IE settings via preferences.

    We find that no matter what order we apply the registry key, it always gets overwritten.

    Here s a prcocmon capture

    Using the display XML option of the Internet Explorer preferences I found that the registry is being set within the preference to 1.

    I have tried exporting the GPO as a backup, editing it to change that reg key to 3, and re-importing it but every time i re-import it, it changes back.

    Does any one have any suggestions on how to get around this please or how to fix this?

    I have seen this question posted but no good answer.  I have a Excel 2016 generated web page (.mht) and an Excel workbook all stored on a SharePoint 2016 site.  I have generated .png's on one of the Excel worksheets in the workbook and published that page only as an .mht file.

    I need to be able to insert a hyperlink on the .mht page that corresponds to a specific tab (worksheet) in the workbook.  When I create a hyperlink in Excel it will only open to the last page viewed and ignores the syntax to open to the specified sheet.  

    Does opening a link to a specified Excel tab work from the browser to an Office application such as Excel.

    We had previously used a group policy preference to set the following registry value, which allows the opening of CHM or Windows Help files from network paths.  We also place the network paths in the Local Intranet zone in IE, although it should automatically detect it as local anyway.

    SOFTWARE\Microsoft\HTMLHelp\1.x\ItssRestrictions\MaxAllowedZone (DWORD) = 1

    This works perfectly for all of our users, until we install KB4103727.  After this we get a, "Can't reach this page error" from our CHM files.

    I double checked the registry and the Local Intranet zone in IE and everything looks like it should.

    I have just come across a very odd problem...

    We are talking Windows 10 and we are talking IE11...

    Many of my customers still use IE11 under Windows 10. On Friday my customer said that she could no longer use IE11..

    I checked her PC and sure enough it wouldn't work.. On further inspection I noticed that the iexplorer.exe file had physically disappeared from the users machine... I could see the directory C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\ and I could see the other files and directories under there but iexplorer.exe was gone...!!

    I tried going in to Add / Remove Features but it would not allow me to install it.... I tried everything to get it back but I just could not put it back, I even copied the file from another Windows 10 PC but it still would not run...

    After hours of trying to get it to work I just gave up and did a re-install of the O/S leaving all the files and programs where they were.. This didn't work first time, but second time I ran it we were back to where we were... All very odd..., the machine has no viruses or malware but the iexplorer.exe file just disappeared..

    I thought this was a one off, but I have just seen it on another Windows 10 machine.. It was there two hours ago, but the file iexplorer.exe has just gone!.. Again, I tried to put it back via Add / Remove Features and there was no option whatsoever in there to add IE11 as a feature?.

    This time I did a System Restore to get it back...

    Is the Microsoft removing the software..?

    I had a very expensive self built laptop with everything integrated as eXtensible, my mouse pad was even custom. and my neighbor owen ingram orchestrated to steal my laptop.  It happened on Oct 31, between 6-9pm.  I would like to look at satalite images of my house or video on this date and time.  Anyone know of a server or where I could go, I am willing to pay for the images or video.  I need my laptop back, desperately

    Also is there any way I can track the laptop via Bluetooth, wireless network, or GPS or any other means?  I would appreciate help on this topic.  This episode in my life has been the single most pathetic move that anyone had done to me, in my life.

    How sad to be this man.

    I can also be reached at georgefrederickalbert@gmail.com

    Thank You

    IE is having a problem opening links that is placed within most businesses web pages that I open.  An error is generated and it says: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage." 

    When I open a new web page, I am able to open about three to four links and then the error displays again.  One of the site that I have to visit and the error is stopping me from visiting it is: "Verizon.com"  the first page is opened but I cannot open any of their links that is within the first pages.

    Could someone kindly send me an e-mail explaining what I need to do to correct this problem; or would it be something that MS will take care from the back end?  You can contact me at:amy_ran40@yahoo.com or call 301-445-1041. 

    I am using Windows 2000, Vista, and 7, with Internet explorer 9, and 10. 

    Thanks for your assistance.

  • 05/14/17--16:31: IE 8 HTTPS Not Working
  • Windows XP SP3 x32
    IE 8

    This is a legacy system that I have to keep running.  Suddenly, I cannot reach any secure (HTTPS) web sites.  This is a problem since Windows Update requires IE.  (I have applications running on this system that are still getting updates.)

    I can access secure (HTTPS) web sites using Firefox but windows update does not work properly with it.

    I have tried clearing the SSL slate, resetting all options to the default.  All add-ons are disabled. 

    I though I could uninstall and reinstall it using add/remove programs\windows features but that only removes the shortcuts.

    Any suggestions on how to get IE 8 working again with HTTPS would be appreciated.

    When you click on a Favorite in Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10 (1803), IE only opens a blank page. Only Intranet site working. And after, no more favorite are displayed in the Favorites menu. I have to close IE.

    If I disable "Protected mode", all working great.

    I read on a post that under the version 1803 the problem is solved, but that seems not to be the case

    My favorites are on a network drive. I have a GPO, Favorites redirected with an UNC path.

    It works fine in IE11 on Windows 7 though using the same configuration (redirected Favorites + Protected Mode).

    I am looking for a way to set a default homepage in Edge, that is set initially to a custom homepage when users first launch Edge, but that is not enforced and allows them to change it, and then it is not changed back. For IE11 we use a group policy preference that is set to run one time only and that works perfectly for this in IE11.

    I am aware of the Administrative template GPO setting Microsoft Edge>Configure home pages, which does work to set the homepage in a enforced manner, but this does not allow users to change it.

    I see many technet and other threads from 2015 with people trying to accomplish this, but none where someone actualaly found a way to do it, there seems be a set of protected registry keys don't don't allow you to change them and have it work. It seems very odd that Edge is the latest and greatest Microsoft browser but that it lacks so many basic management features for customization.

    Now that is is 2017 is anyone aware of a way to configure this in Edge using group policy preferences, registry keys, scripts etc? Anything that can be automated for a large number of Windows 10 systems?
