Internet Explorer & Zip files



Hi all,

I use PowerArchiver 2k2 and WinXP and thus IE 6. For whatever reason, when I go to click on a zip file on the net, it automatically downloads to some temp directory. How do I make it so it prompts me where I want to save the zips? I have already searched through PA's settings and didn't see anything and then I went into File/Folder settings in Explorer and it wasn't obvious there either.

Any suggestions???

Thanks as always!


Go to folder options (controlpanel or Windows Explorer - tools) - filetypes. Find the zip-extension, highlight it, click advanced and check 'confirm open after download'.
Might help, but I don't know PowerArchiver.

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
