Can't save downloads Tags: Internet Explorer Windows 7 Last response: November 19, 2012 6:41 PM in Windows 7 Share Nikkj November 17, 2012 2:30:49 PM I am problems saving downloaded files in windows 7. The files show as having been downloaded (both in Firefox and IE) but when I look in the destination folder - nothing. Even searching for the downloaded file shows nothing. I've tried saving to the Desktop, Dowload folder, newly created folders and directly to a USB stick - same issue. No warning windows come up and I can copy and paste files between all directories. Am I missing some permissions somewhere? A second (maybe related problem) is that attached files in Windows Live emails can't be opened for editing with Word. Any pointers would be appreciated.
