When downloading XML file with IE11, no "open" option is showing up.

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have an issue with several Workstations, that if i set XML document to open by default with IE11, the download bar popping up at the bottom of the window will not show an "open" option. Only save as, or cancel.

    It is the case with some of our workstations, Nothing to do with GPOs because some are working when other are not. I feel that the upgraded Workstations (from Win10 1511 to 1709) are working well, but the fresh installs of the 1709 are not.

    If i set Notepad as the default XML viwer, open IE and download an XML document, the open option will show up, but logically in a Notepad.

    If i set Edge as the default XML viewer, open IE and download an XML document, the open option will NOT show up.

    If i set Edge as the default XML viewer, open edge and download an XML document, the open option will show up.

    For the exmple, i used this website to download xml file to test : www.landxmlproject.org/file-cabinet

    Some help would be appreciated ! Thank you in advance.
