I have UNchecked the "ask me each time you save this type of file" and canīt work out how to get it back.
I know this is a really daft question, but Iīm stumped.
I was saving zipped files at the time, and now itīs not even asking where I want them put.
Hope someone can help.
Thanks in advance.
Dawn.

Right-click the link for the file you want to download, and then click Save Target As.

Thanks, at least I have a way around the problem.
Would like to have the info box come up though.
Thanks again. Dawn

Open My Documents, click tools, folder options, file types, look for the type of file you want to change, left click it, click advanced, check confirm open after download is ticked, click OK
