Internet Explorer 11 - Disable Download Prompt RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have seen a lot of responses to similar questions that must only relate to IE 9 and 10. I need to know how to disable the download prompting in Internet Explorer 11. I do not want to have to continue telling the computer I want to open a file that I have selected. I want it to open immediately when I double click (or click) the file. Does anyone know how this is accomplished in IE 11 (not 10, not 9, not 8).

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    You did not tell us what windows version you are using....

    Post questions about IE and windows security to http://answers.microsoft.com (Help>Online Support menu from IE).... Include with your questions the full address of any websites you are having issues with...

    this forum is for questions about IEAK and GPO administration of domain networked computers using MSIE browsers.

    Settings for download prompts are stored in the IE Security zone settings, which may be controlled by your system Administrators. Changing your IE security zone settings may put your computer at risk... In the first instance consult with your system administrators.

    Download behavior is also affected by what type of file you are trying to download, the domain that you are trying to download from and any third-party addons that you may have installed.

    Thx.

  • You're an idiot.  This forum is not just about IEAK and GPO. Look at the category that the original poster ask the question under.  Where does it say IEAK and GPO?
