    Go to Windows Explorer (My Computer), menu, Tools, Folder Options, and then the File type tab. Scroll down select the file type (zip) and then click on the advance button,. Add a check mark in the box to the right of "Confirm open after down load".

    Hi Dave

    <Add a check mark in the box to the right of "Confirm open after down load".>

    What you suggested was already checked

    Any other thoughts?

    John,

    Don't you get an option to Save or Open when you start the download?

    Yes I do.

    When I select Save, I browse to my save directory and start the download, when the download is finished I want to be asked if I wanted to open the saved file with WinZip 8.1

    John,

    Not sure that you can do it that way. Try this. Select open. Then when WinZip opens the file 'hit' F8 or goto File | Manage Archive | Copy. That will open the WinZip copy archive dialog. You can then copy the ZIP file to whatever folder you desire.

    Re: IE to Open Zip File after Download? (IE 6.00.2

    When the download is finished, do you get a message to that effect and asking if you want to open it?

    If not:
    Tools > Internet Options > Advanced...
    and select "Notify when downloads complete"
