IE7 Download Settings

Dear Computer Lady,

My computer is running Windows Vista with Internet Explorer 7.

On the download dialog box the “close when download complete” is checked. When I download a file, the box disappears so fast I have no chance to change it. I want to uncheck it and have the option to go to download folder. How do I do this? 

Thank you, Kimberly



Dear Kimberly,

I usually just download a large file and un-check the box while the file is downloading.

However, it is possible to change this setting in the Internet Options. Here is how:

1. Open Internet Explorer and click on “Tools”, then on “Internet Options”.

2. In the Internet Options window, click on the “Advanced” tab.

3. On the Advanced page, look in the “Browsing” section and find the setting that says “Notify when downloads complete”. Put a check mark in front of this setting.

4. Click “OK” at the bottom of the window to save your changes and close the window.
