IE 10: ActiveX Controls not seen in the C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files


  • Hi,

    I am using the IE 10 browser and am trying to view the ActiveX controls downloaded as part of an application.

    In IE 9, I usually navigate to C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files & view the files there. When I tried the same in IE 10, I see 0 files, though I can see the controls in the 'Manage Add Ons' of the IE.

    Is there an option that must be set in the IE to view these files? Note that I already have the folder option for viewing Hidden Files/ folders turned on.

    Any help is appreciated.
