Microsoft Edge or alternative browser for download

Installing apps in the newer Windows versions is becoming more and more complicated. Microsoft wants only software signed by them for a fee to be installed under Windows. Actually, this is exactly the advantage of Windows over Apple, for example.

In this tutorial we describe how apps from abylonsoft can be downloaded and installed with the Edge browser. If you encounter problems with the download under Edge, you should definitely use an alternative browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Firefox, Brave or others). This usually makes downloading setups much easier, because these browsers do not generally block unknown software. The images used in the tutorial are screenshots of Microsoft Edge. For other browsers, the icons or their positions may differ, and messages may have different wording.

INFO: The installation instructions after the download starts at point 8.

1. Open download page in Edge browser

First of all, open Microsoft's Edge browser and go to the desired download page. There you will see the recommended setup for your operating system. The download of the setup starts by clicking the Download for free download button.

2. Download display in Edge browser

The Edge browser reports that the setup download has been blocked and may cause damage to the PC.

In this case, move the mouse over the message. A trash can icon and three dots for a menu will be displayed. Via the menu you open the menu item Keep!

5. Show more in the SmartScreen message click

Now the SmartScreen of Microsoft Defender opens and also reports that this app is rarely downloaded and can possibly cause damage to the PC. Here you have to click on Show more.

This will cause a Windows warning message to appear one more time. The Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevents the setup from being executed. The More information link must be clicked again.
