I'm having trouble when I try to download files. Usually I used to get the option of opening a file or saving. Now I only get the option of saving it instead of opening it. I don't want to have to save a file everytime just to open it and I need to know how to fix this back to the way it was. I would appreciate ANY help since I have to download files for school all the time.

Well it works on .exe files but hasn't been working for files that would open with Powerpoint or Word, stuff like that. .ppt and .doc files for example. Browser is Internet Explorer of course. As far as I know it just started. I know you're going to recommend another browser but that simply isn't an option at this time.
