Windows: Avoid confirmation dialog when running excutables in network drives

Posted on


How can I get rid of the confirmation dialog that appears when I try to run an executable which is located in a network drive?

Is there any configuration option somewhere to stop Windows from asking me the same thing every time?


You will want to go to your Internet Options window in Control Panel and add whatever server you are connecting to the “Local Intranet” group.

You may need to move the slider from medium-low to low or go in to the custom level settings and check the radial buttons for anything listed as “prompt” if it is still not working.
