Oper system Windows 10 ver 1909

Downloaded a book in ACSM file format from KOBO Canada. Went to the folder of the download using Win10 File Explorer (Win10FE) could not see the file? Eventually went to Chrome/download/show in folder and I could see my download. After messing around for about an hour I went back to Chrome/download/show in folder selected properties and found on the General tap at the bottom the file was blocked. Unblocked it ...went back to WIN10FE and I could see my file.

Windows 10 or Chrome did NOT warn me that the file was blocked! Why is Microsoft's Windows 10 blocking Adobe's ACSM file downloads. Anyone have an answer?
