No option to Open downladed file - just Save As or Cancel options RRS feed

  • Question

  • If you want to download any file in IE11 there is no option to OPEN the file. Only two options are to SAVE or Cancel no option to OPEN.

    The question: Is there a way to set IE11 via GPO to show the OPEN option in addition to SAVE and Cancel options.

  • Hi,

    what type of file?

    File types have an 'opener' application associated with them... for example pdf documents (*.pdf) are opened in an ActiveX PDF view application...outcomes for ActiveX 'openers' can in turn be affected by say your Adobe PDF Reader settings or your IE ActiveX Filtering settings.

    additionally there are security zone settings that affect opening and downloading different file types... some file types are recognised as dangerous (eg. exe, com, pif, mdb)...

    You GPO security zone templates may affect client outcomes.... Ensure the client is accepting the default IE Security zone settings (Security tab of internet Options>Click "reset all zones to default")
