Downloads Deleted

Post by Sir $wat on 14th March 2010, 1:33 am

Whenever I download a file with internet download manager, the file is moved to a temp folder and it cannot be opened.

What causes this??

It's a hidden folder.

Is there a setting that you can switch it to save to other folders?

Hello,

Are there any error messages when you try to open the folder?

Hello,

You have to rename the file with an extension, you probably downloaded it without an extension.

Hello,

Try selecting the file and hit F2. It should let you rename it.
