Save files instead of opening them in Internet Explorer ?

Depending on file associations and installed programs, Internet Explorer often tries to open all files, instead of giving users the option to save the file or ope in. Also, in the IE menu to save/open files, there is a setting allowing to always open that type of file. If you turn on the "Always Open" setting, itís not immediately obvious how to turn it off.

To change the "always open" setting:

1. In Windows Explorer, click on the "Tools" menu, choose "Folder options"
2. In the window that appears, click on the "File Types" tab, and scroll through the list until you find the file extension you want to change (they're in alphabetical order). For example, if Internet Explorer always tries to open .zip files, scroll through the list until you find the entry for "zip".
3. Click on the file type, then the "Advanced" button.
4. Check the "Confirm after download" box, then click OK > Close.
