If you've previously unchecked the option in IE7 for 'Always ask before opening this type of file' when downloading an Excel Spreadsheet, where can I 'recheck' this option so I will again get prompted when I am accessing this file type?

Hello flipz:


In Windows XP

1. Double-click My Computer, and then click Folder Options on the Tools menu.
2. Click the File Types tab, click a specific file type (for example, Microsoft Excel Worksheet) in the Registered file types box, and then click Advanced.
3. Click to clear the Confirm open after download check box, and then click OK.
 
For next time, just let us know what OS you are in. I assume Windows XP, but I could be wrong.
