When downloading a program or file how can I have the file open button appear...now when I finish downloading, the program automatically closes and I have to go to the directory to open it. I want to be able to open it from the screen I am on
I do it on my other computer but they just re-loaded my win 2000 here at work
Thanks

on that exact download window (Windows) there is a box to uncheck, I believe it says like automatically close this box when download complete or something like that.
Uncheck it then it defaults to Open button right there in the same window

go to www.download.com and pick a very large download 20 - 30 MB usually like a trailer for a movie start download. hit the check box then cancel
Problem should then be fixed

Go to Internet Options, Advanced tab, and check the box that says, "Notify when downloads complete".

Great. Thanks for the feedback.

The method snappy_31 mentioned would have worked, too. You must have a very fast connection, or a very slow trigger finger.
