How can I restore the "Save to Folder Location" setting whenever downloading a file using Internet Explorer 8?

How can I restore the "Save to Folder Location" setting whenever downloading a file using Internet Explorer 8?

I am no longer prompted to choose the download location of where I want a file to be saved that I am downloading using Internet Explorer 8.

Instead, all files are now automatically downloaded into my Temporary Internet Files folder.

How can I get this feature back so that I can choose where I want my downloaded files to be saved?

dn0rm,

While I am able to use the method that you described as a work around, I am hoping to once again be able to click on a file contained within a webpage and then to be prompted as to where I want this file to be downloaded (saved) to. Currently every time that I click on a file, it is automatically downloaded into my Temporary Internet Files folder.
