    Hi All...

    After downloading a file from the internet and choosing "Open Folder" in the "Download Complete" box I get the "Open With" box instead. Been happening awhile and I think it may have something to do w/using Ccleaner or jv16 but had no luck fixing it.

    I appreciate any help you can give me and thanks for being here.

    When the "Open With" box displays, search "C:\Windows" for explorer.exe, then search for the download location.
    I'm hoping this will restore the "Open Folder" link for the next time you choose to download and save.

    It's more likely to be jv16 that caused the current snag than Ccleaner.

    Hi Clint...

    I'll try that out and let you know what happens.

    I did restore all that I did with jv16 but apparently it didn't help. I've used it quite a few times over the years w/o a hitch so I was unsure of the cause.

    Thanks much for the quick reply.

    Hi Clint...

    I tried your suggestion and as soon as I chose explorer.exe the download location opened up immediately. I tried another d/l but it went back to "Open With" again 8-[

    Also, I remembered that there are other times that the Open With box appears, I think it's when I try to choose properties on some shortcuts but am not sure because it was intermittent and it hasn't happened recently, and I can't seem to duplicate it now. Sorry to be so vague but I've lived with this awhile and have accomodated my d/l style to avoid the need for Open Folder. Any other thoughts?

    Thanks much,

    Peter

    Hi Dave,

    I always create specific folders within My Downloads for each d/l I do. That's how I've adapted...I already have the folder open before I d/l whatever file I'm getting.

    Thanks much,

    Peter
