Steps to reproduce
I have a fleet of 100 workstations running Windows 10 at my site. After upgrading to Windows 10 Version 1709 (Build 16.16299), we have several users complaining they are unable to download files, such as pdfs, etc. I’ve noticed that this issue is actually affecting ALL downloads. It seems Edge wants to save all the downloads as text files, as noted in the ‘Save As’ prompt in the download window. Resetting Edge in App Settings will fix the issue for a short time, but the issue returns seemingly randomly on its own. I’ve had to switch the majority of our machines to Chrome to avoid the issue. Several of our users enjoy Edge more than Chrome so I would like to get this figured out/fixed.
