    • The file extension changes to .solitairetheme8 if Microsoft Solitaire Collection is installed

    • I am experiencing this problem as well, and I know of several other who are, also.

      Over 5 months and no response (or fix) from Microsoft?

    • Can this issue be reopened? It is reproducible by having Microsoft Solitaire Collection installed when attempting to download Marcelo’s file. The issue has its roots in how Microsoft Edge determines what file extension to give downloads.

    • We are no longer able to repro this issue. If you are still seeing problems, can you provide additional information? Versioning information, screenshots of the difference, etc.

    • Hi Kelly. I attempted to download a .tgz file from https://developer.nvidia.com/rdp/cudnn-download (The linux install) but this showed up, regardless which file, as a .solitairetheme8 file extension.

      I uninstalled solitaire so it works now. Thanks Braxton for your idea of uninstalling solitaire.

    • I got the same problem on a Windows 10 with Chrome.

    • From what I’ve seen now (since I’m not a Windows Insider), the bug was producible in the Anniversary Update but it’s been fixed as of the Creators Update

    • I’m running the latest insider build and this is still an issue.

    • I’m not on an Insider release - just running the base Creators update - and this is still happening, so it is definitely not yet fixed. I am using Chrome too.

    • Same issue occurs with latest edge version “Microsoft Edge 40.15063.0.0” in creators update. I tried to download the kafka_2.12-0.10.2.1.tgz from my local web server but it is downloaded and saved locally with .solitairetheme8 extension instead of .tgz.
