Can you please explain how I can run a program I select when the window only offers me save. For example I am trying to download Google mail notifier, when I click on download there is no option of run, only save. This applies to other programs I try to download. Where does the saved program go to and how can I use it to obtain the program. Better still how can I have both options, run and save. Thank you. Brian Rymell

Click on 'save'. It will offer you a place to save it ... either in Downloads or Documents. You can also browse for another place. I always choose 'downloads'. When it has finished downloading, click to 'open file'. You will see the program set up ... click on that ... it will then be added to your programs file folder. You should be able to run the program now.
