Windows 7: Download problems in IE9

Download problems in IE9

When I try to download a file I get the download pop up at the bottom of my screen, which I dislike, it offers me the standard "Run Save' option. When I select Save nothing happens, when I select Run it runs the file but will not save the file. This started recently and was working correctly before. I my have reset something by mistake.
Any ideas on what happened?

Hello Ken,

This is a new feature in IE9. Instead of getting the usual Save/Run dialog box, it gives you a Save/Run information bar pop-up. Same thing.

By default, IE9 saves to your C:\Users\(user-name)\Download folder. The tutorial below can show you how to change it to whatever location you like though.

In addition, the tutorial below can show you how to view and delete your download history.

That fixed it. I moved my default Downloads folder of my C Dirve ( my new SSD) and put it on my D dirve (HHD)
