Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded

After deploying/Installing new windows server, when I try to download any files through Internet Explorer, I will encounter a Security Alert saying, “Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded”. And it won’t allow me to download any files. This alert appeared due to default security settings in Internet explorer;.

To overcome this alert, you must enable download settings in Internet explorer. It’s very simple, just follow below steps or attached screen.

  1. Open Internet explorer, click on settings and Internet options.
  2. Internet option screen, select the Security tab, then click on Internet and Custom level
  3. In the Security Setting-Internet Zone form go to download setting and select Enable File downloads and press Ok.

You can restart Internet Explorer to reflect changes.
