IE11 disable Open/Save prompt when downloading .csv files
Windows 7: I am trying to download a .csv file as part of a batch file but execution stops at the Save/Open popup.
To disable this (doing so for .csv files is safe enough for me) I followed these instructions:
1.In Internet Explorer 10 or 11 you will first have to click on a file of the type you want to open automatically next time.
2.This will give you the Open/Save prompt.
3.Select the Save option.
4.Then in Internet Explorer click Tools
5.Under Tools click the View Downloads option
6.You will see a popup containing the file that you just downloaded.
7.Right-click on the file
8.In the options presented, make sure to un-check the option labeled: Always ask before opening this type of file
From now on if you click on a file of that type, the file will bypass the automatic prompt and will open automatically.
However when I right-click on a .csv file - step 7. above - I do not see the option Always ask before opening this type of file
What am I doing wrong ?

Then I look in the Default Downloads Folder on my HDD, double-click the file and let it open in the default program, usually for .csv files it is Excel or other spreadsheet program that is installed. If given a choice of program to use instead, I make that choice then.
