Why directly download in temporay folder?

Hi:

Today I find that when I try to download a file (.mpg extension) in IE 6 it starts download in Temporay folder. It's doesn't ask me to choose any folder. Is there any way that it ask me to choose folder first?

Rana,

Does it download the file to a temp folder and after it completes the download, does it move or ask you where to put the file ?
