When downloading a zip file from the internet, Windows “blocks” it. By that I mean I have to right click>Properties>and click unblock.
Is there a way to stop windows from doing this?
I think this is what you want:
You do not say if you are using a Pro or home version.
If you you have a Pro version, open gpedit.msc (this is not available in home version, but is easier to use) and go to:
and enable the policy called
Do not preserve zone information in
Then run gpupdate /force from a command prompt.
If you have a home version of the OS, go to this registry key:
and edit the value for key
SaveZoneInformation to 2
You may have to create these keys, and if you want, you can also create them system-wide here:
