By now I hope everyone has ditched old Edge. I have been using it since the early beta and have been recommending everyone switches to it since it was made generally available in January 2020. It’s simply brilliant – I maybe touch another browser once a month these days, despite having been a big fan of Chrome and fine with old Edge. I never expected to be passionate about a browser, mostly I just want it to get out of the way and let me do my web stuff. However the new Edge is really that good. But for one small thing…
If you are using it then you, like me may be slightly narked that there is a confirmation pop-up whenever it tries to launch an external app, such as Word, Excel and all the other MS etc applications that I use daily from the intranet etc.
This is how you fix it
If you have that problem, I might have a solution for you; one that doesn’t require a registry hack. Try this:
1. Open settings from the More menu:
2. Go to Site Permissions and select Pop-ups and redirects
3. Click Add and paste in the intranet URL: https://yourdomain.sharepoint.com/
Click the Add button
4. Now try to open a document etc.
You should get the pop-up with an option to always accept in future
