How do I get the dialoge box to not close automatically after a download is complete? I have to minimize my browser, and open my desktop folder called Downloads to click on the downloaded item.

Hello ChipsA.Hoy...

In Internet Explorer, once you start a download, there is a check box in the download dialog window...clearing this checkbox will allow the download dialog to stay open after the download completes.

In Firefox, click "Tools" on the toolbar and choose "Options". Under the "General" (Main) icon, look in the "Downloads" section...make sure the "Close it when all downloads are finished" check box is clear.

Apply any changes you make.
