In Windows Explorer go to Tools, Folder Options, File Types.  Locate the
file extension in question, highlight it and click Advanced.  Check Confirm
open after download.

1.Always ask is now always save

I'm an XP novice and lost trying to find where to edit 
this setting. When attempting to download a file, I was 
getting an " always ask" prompt to " open or save to 
disk ". Being lazy, I clicked on save to disk. It appears 
now all my downloads are affected by tis change and I need 
to allow XP to to save the file before the application 
assigned to it will open.
specifically, money2003 uses files with the extension QFX 
and Money2003 would open as soon as the download was 
complete. Now, I find I need to save the  file to disk , 
then Money2003 will open.
   I am no longer prompted to open/save - it defaults to a 
save as screen and I would like to chenge it back to lways 
    thanks in advance !

2.WMP11 always asks Get Connected??


Ever since I installed WMP11, it runs the 'Get Connected' wizard every time 
I start WMP11. As it can't find a device, it's never able to complete. How do 
I stop it from bugging the hell out of me? I can't find anything about this 
in the FAQs or the help articles in MS support.


3.Media player always asks for permission to stream in XP

When I click on a link for streaming an audio file, MP9 always asks
permission even though I check the box that says to not ask again. Am
I correct in assuming it's an XP security feature? Can I disable it so
I don't have to click "Yes" every time?
