I asked this question 2 years ago. And im faced with the same problem again. Here is my original post from 2 years ago. I tried the solutions listed on this post but im still having the same problem...
In fact, when I originally went to Explorer/View>folder options, checked "folder types" tab, scrolled down to the "winzip" file, clicked "Edit" , the "confirm open after download" is already checked.
So, I unchecked it, rebooted my pc about 5 times, re-checked it, rebooted my pc 5 times, then I tried downloading a .zip file and it the program immediately starts to download and once the download is complete, it automatically opens my winzip program (and asks me if i want to un-zip this file etc...)
The problem is, I dont what that. I want to be able to start the .zip file download, have windows ask me where i want to save the file, and then have the file saved to that location without opening.
HELP!! ARGHH This is a bit frustrating - all i want to do is save the file.
Any help is appreciated.
NOTE: I have TweekUI if that helps.
