This is an issue on older versions of Windows 10 and should be fixed in Windows 10 April Update.

Should we then advance the minimum required version accordingly?

I would like to have a confirmation from Ross that this is indeed working now. And that it is fixed in April Update, and not Fall Creators Update, as I may be wrong which exactly update fixed the issue.

  • Resolution worksforme deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Sounds good, but we shouldn't close the issue yet. Either way a change is required, even if that change is just to update the minimum required version.

Ross, can you confirm?

comment:7 Changed 3 months ago by Ross

This no longer seems to be an issue. I can download and open a bunch of files types in Edge as expected.

Thanks, but officially we are still supporting 16299 (Fall Creator's Update), 17134 is the (later) April Update. Ollie suspected above that this issue was addressed on their end with that update. Is there a way we can test this on Windows build 16299?
