Hi,It's not really a windows function, but a Broswerr function.It Depends on the Browser. Sometimes, right click won't give you access to the actual file.In Firefox, I go to tools, Options, Downloads, and I can choose which folder, or I can force it to ask where to save every file downloaded. Then when I click download, I get a prompt or it goes to the folder I chose. depends what hardware profile I am using. :-)If you're not using Firefox, you'll have to ask someone else. :-)Regards,Joeaopa.gif" border="0" alt="Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]

Dash,1) Open Windows Explorer, go to > Tools > Folder Options.2) Click on the File Types tab, wait for them to load, scroll down to the bottom of the list, and single click on ZIP.3) Click on Advanced toward the bottom so the Edit File Type dialog comes up.4) Check the box Confirm open after download and OK your way back out.That should do the trick!Hope this helps,Kevin
