Downloading files from Internet

XP user:

If I wanted to download a file from a website then normally I'd click on the link on the site and a dialog box used to come up giving me the option to save in a suitable location or open it.

I have accidentally ticked something that no longer gives me the option of saving and no just opens files.

How do I return things to their original state and get the option to save it (i.e download it to a folder of my choosing rather than open it.

Any help much appreciate as the simplest things bug me.

Thx.

SYMPTOMS
When you download a file from the Internet, you may not be prompted for the location in which to save the file that you are downloading. Instead, the file may be opened.

CAUSE
This behavior can occur if you clear the Always ask before opening this type of file check box when you download a file. If you do this, files of this type are automatically placed in the Temporary Internet Files folder and opened by the program that is associated with the file type.

RESOLUTION
If you want to be prompted for a download location for the file type, follow these steps:

1. Double-click My Computer.

2. On the View menu, click Folder Options.

3. On the File Types tab, click the appropriate file type in the Registered File Types box.

4. Click Edit.

5. Click to select the Confirm Open After Download check box.

6. Click OK, and then click OK.
