    Missing Dialogue box (IE 6)

    When I attempt to download a file, I am not provided with the dialogue box that asks if I want it saved or opened. It is automatically opening everything I download. How do I get the dialogue box back?

    Go to Start/Settings/Folder Options.../File types/scroll for the file that you want to download/click Edit & then check the box that says "Confirm open after download". I happened to have a picture of the dialog box (but ignore what's circled...that's for another problem. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
