Hi All we have a whole load of files saved on a Windows 2012 Server various Excel Documents and Word Documents.

We have a Mapped Drive to this location through group policy, Every time we go to open up a Document we get the following

The File originated from an Internet location and might be unsafe click here for more details  Enable Editing

I do not really want to change the Protected view settings, and the files are all located on an internal file server and have not been generated from the Internet, it just seems that everything being opened from the mapped drive is generated from the internet

if I save one of the files directly to the PC it opens fine

John

The files didn't originate from the users computer therefore it is classified as being from an Internet location. You can prevent this if you set the "Allow Network Locations" option in the Trust Center.

See my article Overcome the Trust Center nuisance for more info.
