Windows 7: Change IE 11 Download Settings

16 Aug 2014   #11

Windows 7 SP1

Hi All.

Thanks for your input much appreciated. Yes as I am thinking further about this I have discovered that it is a setting in Foxit Reader which appears to have been removed in the latest version or they have just changed the way it worked as previous versions operated differently.

It would be most likely easier to live with the right click option.

Much appreciate your help everyone it appears that it is most likely it cannot be done.

With thanks

You could always use something like Iobit's Uninstaller or Geek Uninstaller to remove Foxit and ALL the files+registry entries it leaves behind, then install the latest version again. A download of a random PDF in the meantime will tell you if IE goes back to behaving "properly".

DO NOT use any IOBit software - without taking out insurance first!
I've seen too many people have problems after using their registry 'optimizers' and 'cleaners' - and other software.
