A while ago, Windows 10 started to popup an Edge browser window after reboot without an internet connection

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/21

Does anyone know how to disable Edge popping up with a failed link www.msftconnecttest.com/redirect on machines blocked by a router?

This happens on the PC running Windows 10 Pro N (winver shows 1709 build 16299.371) that is not allowed to do any internet access.

TL;DR:

This can happen on Windows 8 and up when Windows thinks there is a partial network connection and a logon to a proxy or captive portal might solve the solution.

Allowing these in the proxy for port 80 solves the issue:
