[edit] No Longer Prompted to Save Files

[edit] Problem

  • When downloading, you are no longer prompted to save your files where you want them.
  • When right-clicking on a file to save or just clicking on a file to save, you are no longer prompted with a window to save your file wherever you want on your computer. It looks like it's downloading, but you have no idea where.

[edit] Cause

Your files are actually being downloaded to your Temporary Internet Files folder, but who wants to wade through all that junk!

[edit] Solution

Though this has NOTHING to do with Sims 2, but since we are all downloadaholics, here's how to fix this:

  • Open up your My Documents folder
  • Click on Tools
  • Click on Folder Options
  • Click on File Types tab
  • Search for type of file you're downloading - either .zip or .rar or .sims2pack, etc
  • Click on Advanced button
  • See "Confirm open after download" - It should be checked - UNCHECK IT - then click OK
  • Then CHECK "Confirm open after download" again - then click OK

Close all windows and try downloading again. You should be prompted to ask where you want to save your download again.
