ive got a zip file on my web page with a hyperlink attached...


when i click on the hyperlink, rather than getting the option to download the file, explorer opens the zip file automatically..and takes me to a new page which shows me the contents of the zip file..


is there a way to stop this from automatically happening?

i want people to click on the hyperlink, and have to download the file...not have it open.

thanks,

jeremy

I have no answer for your question, but wanted to confirm that it is definitely your computer that is making it happen that way, I wouldn't worry much that your visitors are experiencing the same thing.

I may be mistaken but isn't that an option in winzip?

if you use winzip look around in there

if not (or you don't find anything) check the file settings in explorer (tools ->file types) find zip files click advanced. make sure the first action is open with winzip (or whatever program, min says winzip) and that the option "confirm open after download" is ticked

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
