Windows 7: How to display download bar and bottom of the screen

How to display download bar and bottom of the screen

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium with IE 9. How do you get the File Download Bar or what ever they call it to be visable when you are downloading a file from a website. The bar I am talking about shows up at the bottom of the screen and it shows the name of the program file in bold letters and at the right end of the bar you have three options: "RUN" "SAVE" or ("save as)" "CANCEL" Or and "X" at the edge of the bar.

See if this helps.
Open I.E.9 and select tool and then select view downloads. I seldom use I.E. so I'm not sure if it will fix your problem or not but it cost nothing to try.

Problem solved when I updated Windows 7 to include SP1. Then It started working.
Thanks for your response

A silly question; SP-1 has been out for a long time. What took so long to get it installed?

Can I change IE download bar @ bottom to movable box like XP had?
Our office just switched over to W7 and we have VERY little ability to alter things without admin settings. I'm used to the "save file" being a dialog box that I could move around the page to any position I wanted it to be, but apparently W7 has this bar glued to the bottom of the page. ...
