Is there a popup blocker issue when you are downloading from IE 11 and try to save the documents.  Nothing seems to happen when you click on save.

Are you sure?
take your IE browser off fullscreen do you see the download at the bottom of the page
Checked downloads
Go to Tools at the top and view downloads
Looked in your actual downloads folder
Is the document have any .exe attached? you'll know what has happened when you look in IE downloads
Is the document downloadable?
Are you rightclicking the document and save as?
Anychance you could post the URL so I can test it if none of the above help.

It is definitely not in downloads and it is not an EXE file.  No trace of it or any information on it found in IE downloads.  Document can be retrieved by other company computers.  I think it is a new Java issue as the new version was downloaded recently.

Hi, if it's a java problem then consider contacting your local administrator about it, I cant assist you with this it's completly out of my experince range. Java scripts and web applications that is..
As I dont have a full picture maybe requesting attention could bring in more experts.
The mods will also post your question to specific zones as this zone is miscellaneous.
Hope you find a solution MAThornton

Thanks, Merete.  We set explorer back a version and so far it is working.  Would like to know why IE11 is giving such issue but for now we are functionable.

Thanks,

Very good to hear MAThornton
So using IE10 allows you to download these docs but not IE 11?
I'm running IE11 and so far I have had no signs of anything different from IE10.
Upgrading from IE10 to IE11 settings should remain the same
Click, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, Restore Advanced setting,
Maybe check the settings in IE10 security settings etc and we could compare your IE10 with my IE11
Do you have allow all cookies?
Are you using windows 7 x64?
I have disabled protected mode as my AVG has a link scanner
So may you need to enable ActiveX, Flash and Java
For a test run IE11 as admin and try to download
 what's new in IE11 says>
Although there isn’t much difference between IE11 from its previous versions,
However, Microsoft says that the javascript engine of IE11 is almost 10% faster than IE10 and 30% faster than browsers like Chrome and Firefox
Well I have uninstalled java on my system last year as it was a virus threat to all users.
Go figure.

Here are the big changes in Internet Explorer 11
