    Save Attachment Option Missing (Outlook2K SR-1+/Win2K SP2+)

    I am not sure how long this has been going on but I suspect the last round of IE 5.5SP2+ security updates as the culprit. When clicking on the attachment paper clip to view the list of attachments the option to "save atttachments" is now missing. This is annoying. With doc and jpg files I now must open them first and use save as. In the case of a recent pps file It would only run the presentation and no possibility of an easy save. Is there a quick fix to get my "save attachment" option back?

    Someone checked the "Do not ask again" box.

    What you can do is open Windows Explorer, then, Tools, Folder Options. Select the 'File type' tab, scroll down to the extension needed to change and select, then click the "Advance" button. Make sure that there is a checkmark in front of "Confirm open after download".

    I am using Windows XP Pro and you are using 2K so it may be different, I can not remember.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
