Can't download files from sites using IE 11

Hello,

I can't download files from sites using IE 11.  I am using Windows 8.1.   I have the latest patches and have enabled Protected Mode on internet, local intranet and trusted sites zones.

Thanks,


PBIT

In IE11 go to Tools - Internet Options - Advanced tab
De-select "Enable Enhanced Protected Mode" (under the Security title)

Close and Open IE and try again.

Let me know if this helps or not.

As a test, could you add one site as trusted ans see if that allows downloading from that site.

Did you unchecked or checked "Enable Enhance Protected mode"?

I have those settings set.  Some sites I can download files, while others I can't.  I suspect some sites are not compatible with IE 11, so I may not matter what I do with IE 11.
