Open/Save box with IE10

Hello,
I just have a machine with Win7-SP1 64bits and IE10.
When I have a mail with a link (ex: Powerpoint show) and I push Download, the file is always directly downloaded to my machine.
On my previous version I become a window where I can select between Open and Save.
Pushing the Open button the powerpoint show was started without first downloading to my computer.
Is there a way to get back this window when I select download on a mail attachment.
Thanks
Frank

Contrary to popular opinion, open/save does save the file to your computer but in a different location (open saves to your %temp% folder, save saves it to your download folder)

Mail with a link is the key here as to how you would open this file, when your email has a URL that is not actually linking to a web page that you open
and on that web page contains the actual PPS where you open/or save or download
but rather the email has the URL which links to the actual file embedded in the web page.
To change this the sender can either attach the PPS as an attachment the PPS is downloaded with email no URL you just open it play it.
or send you the URL to the web page that has the PPS where you can choose to open or save download.
As I see it this is designed to be like that and cannot be changed when the URL holds the direct link to this PPS.
It's like if I send a Google search results URL with many URL to your email you would open that URL and see the web page and select the PPS from that.
Verses sending the actual URL for the PPS.
Understand?

Thank you, but I don't understand. Why it is working on my XP machine. In that case I can make a choise between open the file or save the file. On my Win7 (IE10) there is no selection. The file is always saved.

Hi,
with xp were you using an email client on windows xp such as Outlook Express? Outlook?
An attachment in either of these always have the option to open or save

However
Windows 7 does not have an email client so you can use either Outlook or Windows Live mail windows live downloaded with windows Essentials or use a web client like Gmail or Yahoo  etc/
Possibly your web mail client is the problem?
Which email client you using?
How are you using IE 10 to open attachments?
I would suggest you use IE 9 with windows 7
IE 10 is still in beta stages a preview if you like so it has bugs.
