IE will not open any links to any Microsoft sites RRS feed

  • Question

  • Suddenly, seemingly after updates for Windows 10 1703, IE will not open any links to a Microsoft site from a search engine or any site at all, even if it's from a Microsoft site to begin with. There have been no GPO changes or any other changes that would affect this behavior. If you copy and paste the url into the address bar, it works fine. The links also work fine from other browsers. Has anyone else experienced this issue? My guess is that this is Microsoft's way of trying to force us to use Edge.

  • Turns out someone did make a GPO change and added www.microsoft.com to the Trusted Site Zone and we have a policy that prevents zone escalation, thus the reason why this didn't work.
