This question already has an answer here:
Is there a way to add all local files (
file://) to Trusted sites or to be recognized as from the Intranet zone? Inetrnet Explorer (11 if that matters) treats them as being in the Internet zone for which I want to keep Protected mode turned on but that causes various issues to the site I'm trying to debug locally.
There is a trick with adding
<!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->
to the HTML file but it would be hugely inconvenient to do that for every local file. Is there a better way? Possibly some wildcard path to add to Trusted sites or something like that?
