Open, Save File dialogue box

I have accidentally changed the default for the ' Save,Open, File'
dialogue box that comes up when downloading anything. Can anyone tell me how to get it back please ?

Are you saying that when you download a file, such as a document from an email, after you save, you no longer automatically get a window asking if you would like to open the file or folder? That is what is happening for me as of today.

No, when you select 'download' for a file, you usually get the File Download Box coming up asking
'Do you want to open or save this file ?

I get something else come up instead which is the result of my error.

That screenshot is of Internet Download Manager 6.05 that's part of the trouble you should uninstall it.

So do you have it fixed?
