I'm running Windows XP. Each time I click on the file and ask Windows to download it, a list of my most recent Downloads - with the current download at the top of the list - opens up. How can I prevent this from happening?
Thank you

I assume you are using Mozilla Firefox browser.

If so go to "Tools" - > "Options..." under Downloads frame uncheck "Show the Downloads windows when downloading a file".

Hope it helps

Thank you. By the way, you meant:

"Tools - Options - General"

There is no "Downloads" frame.
