Downloading .EXE files in IE3.01
Posted on 1997-03-15
Usually when I click on a file on a web page that has a .EXE extention, it asks me what I want to do with it - Either save it or Open. Also there is a select box next to which it says 'Do not ask this again for this file type' (or something like that!).
I ticked this box, assuming that in future all .EXE files would just download into my selected directory. This is not the case! Instead it downloads it and opens it.
This only happens with .EXE files. Other files, such as .ZIP, are fine.
Although I can right click on the file and do a 'Save Target As...' I would like to have the old functionality back. Any idea how I would go about doing this?
Or even just download the file into my selected directory without asking ANY questions?
