Hi -

I'm trying to save to my hard drive an ArcView .prj file that is attached to a hotmail message. When I choose download, I don't get the option to save it - it automatically opens up as a webpage. If I go to "File," "Save," from inside this webpage, it won't save it in the right format, so I'm not able to use this file in ArcView.

Any suggestions on how to get this file so I can use it?

Thanks in advance!

U will have to reset "Always ask before opening this type of file" function back for .prj files.
Follow these steps:

1. Open Control Panel->Folder Options.

2. Select the File Types tab.

3. Scroll down to the extension type that you want to reset (in ur case prj).

4. Select the extension type, then click Advanced.

5. Check the "Confirm open after download" check box, then click OK.

6. Click Close to the Folder Options dialog box.

Thanks for the suggestion. I gave it a try, and it turns out that prj was not listed among the file types under folder options. I tried making a new file type for it and checked "Confirm open," but I'm still having the same problem.

Any more ideas?
