Download prompt Dialog box?

By skloo77 ·
Normally when you click on a download link, it will prompt you for the destination path to save the file to.

And there is this option.
"Always ask before opening this type of file"

My itchy unchecked the "tick" and the dialog box never appeared again.

I have reset my Folder and IE options but it still doesn't comes back.

I want it back. Any takers?

In Windows XP, open "My computer". Then, go to menu "Tools" -> "Folder options". Choose tab "File types" and select the desired file type and press button "Advanced". In the window that pops up, you'll se an option called "Confirm open after download". All you need to do is check it.

I can certainly help you with this one.
Open My Computer, go to TOOLS, then FOLDER OPTIONS. Click on the FILE TYPES tab, and scroll down to the extention which will not open i.e. DOC for word docs, click on it once then click on ADVANCED, you will see a box that says CONFIRM OPEN AFTER DOWNLOAD. Put the tick in the box,apply it and that's it. You will need to do this with every extention that doesn't give the SAVE TO DISK option like it used to.

Sounds long and winded but good luck.
