Question IE Downloader, "always ask..." checkbox

i was downloading some files and there were loads of them to download so i unchecked the "always ask where to save" (or whatever it is), check box so it would just save them without asking me... trouble is i cant figure out how to get it back to normal i want it so it asks me where i want to save it

does any one know how to get it back?

thanks in advance


Ryan

The only way I've found to do this is this:

Go into Windows Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, File type.

Highlight each type you've disabled the prompt for, click advanced and check the box "Confirm Open After Download"
