    Hi Uday,

    The way suggested by you will enable uploading the exe files to any of the document library in the web application.

    Can we unblock the uploading of exe’s to a particular document library not to entire web application or atleast to a site collection only.

    Kindly let us know

    Hi Uday,

    The way you have suggested would enable the uploading of exe files to all the document libraries in the web application.

    Could we unblock to a particular document library instead of entire web application or to a site collection at least.

    Kindly let us know.

    Hi Khatri,
    As of now i couldnt find any global list for Blocked file extensions,

    when you open operations -> Security configuration -> blocked file extensions.

    you will be able to choose the web application in the top right corner.

    when you edit blocked file types it will allowed only for the web application you chosen.

    it will not change the settings for entire farm.

    Hope this will helps you.
