Add trusted location by IP on Windows 10 By mike on 28th March 2021 03:54:48 PM
  1. Adding a trusted network location in Office doesn't allow mount/drive letters. What is required is a UNC path, however this doesn't work for network drives mounted on IP address.
  2.  
  3. -----------------------------------
  4.  
  5. First there is a general step to make the tick box "Allow Trusted Location on my network (not recommended)" available. This tick box is located in
  6.  
  7. Office > Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings > Trusted Locations
  8.  
  9. To be able to enable it, we have to change the registry;
  10. - Regedit (as Admin?)
  11.  
  12. - Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Excel\Security\Trusted Locations
  13. - REG_DWORD "AllowNetworkLocations" = 1
  14.  
  15. - Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Word\Security\Trusted Locations
  16. - REG_DWORD "AllowNetworkLocations" = 1
  17.  
  18. -----------------------------------
  19. But now the work around for IP addresses.
  20.  
  21. Go to;
  22. Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Security -> Zone : Trusted Sites
  23. Add IP Address (tick HTTPS required) without any slashes or prefix. Just the IP and press Add / Close
  24.  
  25. This is it. No modifications required or location to add in office trust center.
