How to fix Dynamics 365 File download apostrophe bug

How to fix Dynamics 365 File download apostrophe bug

The Problem

Starting in Chrome 72 the way the file download process works has changed. For Dynamics users, this means that files are currently being downloaded with a character surrounding the files.

What this means is if a user downloads a file called Report.xls what actually happens is the file is downloaded as ‘Report.xls’ which causes the file to be unknown. There is no problem with the file itself, but this is very confusing for users.

The Solution

To fix this, users may rename the file to remove the apostrophe or if you like, I wrote a Chrome Plugin available for FREE that will automatically remove the apostrophe before download.

Download the extension from the Chrome Web Store here or click the button or image below.
