    Help Needed, How to display (always) the file download screen


    Hi All,

    Does anyone knows how to set up properly the browser to always show the "File
    Download" screen everytime I open an excel file. One of my machine is not
    showing this screen it goes directly to opening file in excel I want to have
    the option of selecting whether I want to "Open the file from its current
    location" of "Save the file to disk". I tried comparing the mime type setting
    in both machines and they are identical or am I missing something?

    Thanks a lot in advance.
