Another basic Wk2 Sp3 question.

Prior to my fresh install when I left clicked on a link on a website for a file download, it would default to a save screen. Now when I left click it defaults to open. In order to save I have to right click and save as target.

Anyone know where the settings are for this to adjust it?

Thanks

If my memory serves me correctly, you need to select the setting, "Confirm After Download" for "URL Hyper Text Transfer" file type. I don't have W2K in front of me but in XP you'd select "Folder Options" from the ControlPanel and then click on the "File Types" tab. Then scroll down to that particular file type and then click on "Advanced" to select the "Confirm After Download" setting.

Let us know if you're abale to locate the setting.

If modifying that setting for that file type doesn't work, then check the settings for the particular file type your downloading and be sure the "Confirm After Download" is also selected for that specific file type, i.e. .exe, .zip, etc .....

BTW, you should also be able to get to the FolderOptions>FileTypes settings from any Windows Explorer window by clicking on Tools>Fodler Options.

Hi Bryan,

Thanks that had been my first guess but the option hadn't looked right. That's what I get for not experimenting. Ya, the steps are exactly the same in Wk2.

Thanks
