Not getting any way to set or remove the publisher name from windows. I don't want to solve by security setting. If any other solution please tell.

1 Answer 1


I don't know if there are other options, but the only ones I know are local security policies (open via Start -> run: gpedit.msc):

Local Computer Policy -> User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Attachment Manager

Low risk file types: Enter the file types you want (e.g. .exe)

Or via registry:

Registry keys:
