    Download prompt by Security Zone (IE6 on XPSP2)

    Hi,

    We have an intranet application that runs within the IE6 "Trusted Sites" zone. When users click a hyperlink to open a Word (.doc) document, they are prompted to Open, Save or Cancel the operation (along with the tick box for "Always ask when opening documents of this type").

    I know that this setting is controlled within XP, via the Advanced button of the File Types dialog and the "Confirm Open after Download" tick box. My question is whether I can control this setting at the IE Trusted Zone Security Level? That is, I want to turn off (uncheck) the "Confirm Open after Download" tick box for .doc files on all our network machines, but only within the IE Trusted Sites Zone; I don't want unprompted opening of .docs when users are out on the wider internet.

    Anyone know if this is possible?

    TIA,

    Ade

    I hope that someone has a solution for you, but I don't think it is possible. The "Confirm Open after Download" setting only depends on the extension, not on the internet zone.
