How to disable "Do you want to open or save..." popup in IE10? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our company web application UI invokes creation of an excel file by pressing a button on modal dialog. It creates an excel file and tries to open it by Microsoft Excel. The problem is, IE10 brings "Do you want to open..." yellow popup at the bottom of the screen, and this popup is unavailable, because of modal dialog the excel file creation was launched from. Only when this modal dialog is closed yellow popup became available.

    Being not sure if this problem has a resolution without of application redesign, I was thinking about to disable the yellow popup at all. Is it possible? Any ideas?
