I know there is a similar answer here:

Fine-tuning "Open safe files after downloading"

But, the answer seems to not work in Big Sur because I can no longer find the file:


Can anyone tell me how to add a file type to the safe list for opening immediately after download in Safari for Big Sur?

Specifically, I would like to automatically launch Citrix .ica files immediately after download.


I'm proposing an alternative here, going forward, since the option isn't there anymore, why not use Automator and/or Shortcuts for Mac (starting from Monterey).

You could check the "Downloads" folder for any new .ica files and open them immediately.

  • I'm not that familiar with automator. Can you elaborate?

  • Sure, Automator is an integrated Mac app that allows for various automation to take place. <br/> Your automation could be: > Watch the download folder > If any new .ica files appears >> Open it with Citrix <br/> Two videos that could help you get started : youtube.com/watch?v=tYcBTlN9_vM & youtube.com/watch?v=2LaitUcUEqg
