Any way to make "Save Target As" be the default action for a link?
Posted on 2003-03-14
Clicking a media link, such as a sound file or video in Internet Explorer causes the file to be automatically opened within the associated application. Is there any way to make it prompt with a file save dialog rather than going by OLE or MIME type?
It isn't feasible for me to change the association on all of the client machines, sadly, and we're trying to avoid having to train people to "right click, save target as" as it really breaks the UI paradigm we've used (links are image "buttons"...alas!)
Thanks for any help. I have a feeling this is impossible. :(
