    Hi Guys
    I was wondering why all of a sudden when downloading files (ie: zip files) i am not given the option as to where I want them placed. I used to get a dialogue box asking me where the destination is to be but now it just starts downloading to a temp file. I cant locate if or where it is putting the downloads....lol.
    So the question is how do i get the dialogue box back so I can nominate where I can save the file to disk?

    Many thx
    Lozza :)

    Hi lozza

    Click "my computer"
    view -
    folder options -
    file types -
    scroll down to "zip" (this may be Winzip or Winrar) whichever has the .zip extension
    highlight the file type
    click "edit"
    put a tick in "confirm open after download"
    click ok twice and your done

    steam
