Hello.

I didn't know that there is a semi-classic download dialog box in IE9 and it will appear sometimes when I click on a download link.

So I don't know if it is possible, but I would like to have an option in the Classic IE9 that can force IE to use the semi-classic download dialog whenever I click on a download link, and after I made a choice in the dialog (open, save, save as), the normal download bar then appears and shows the download status for me.

Thanks!

    Or at least make "save as..." as default possible.

    The only way to affect the download UI is to write a new download manager. That's not something I am interested in doing. Search for "internet explorer download manager" and maybe you can find some software that works for you.

    Alright.

    I also sent a feedback about this to Microsoft see if it can make a difference.

    And thank you for your work on Classic Shell.
