How to configure Internet explorer 9 to open and display HTTP links with no file suffix?

Dear experts,
The in-house website has many HTTP:// pages with no suffix (for example instead of http://coolsite/portal/server.pt/file.html   we have http://coolsite/portal/server.pt/file )
Whenever I click on such link (with no suffix)  IE ask me whether he wants me to save the file.

 I would like IE 9 to open the link in the browser  as same  as it does with .html /htm .   How can I configure Internet explorer 9 to do that?

Thanks in advance,

I'm not sure it's possible to assign a null file type a default application.  .HTM/.html, etc, work because the extentions exist and so the OS knows what application to use.  A null extention is indistinguishable from a folder.

I think the only work-around would be to place your content within a directory folder named whatever you want, let's say "example1".

so, you would have "http://coolsite/portal/server.pt/example1"

where "example1" is the name of the directory, and your content is on and index.html (or default, whichever works for you) page within that "example1" folder. So you wouldn't need to type in the actual filename "index.html" and your path will show no file extension.

Exactly my point.  The extension-less document would have to be the default document for the folder.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the prompt reply. So there isn’t any solution from the client side? (I am end user and I cannot modify the actual content).

Thanks in advance,

The funny thing, is that its working properly in IE 7, so something has been changed for sure.
