"Save As" Feature in Microsoft Edge

Q: "Save As" Feature in Microsoft Edge

It blows my mind (small explosion, I admit) that Microsoft Edge didn't come with a "Save As" feature when downloading something from the internet allowing us to change the name of the file as well as the location in which it is being saved. And I was hoping that with updates it would be added. However, I still don't see the feature, even after this November update.

Does anyone know if this will ever be added? I have been using Edge since it came out, but if this kind of boneheadedness continues, I will be switching back to IE.

Preferred Solution: "Save As" Feature in Microsoft Edge

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: "Save As" Feature in Microsoft Edge

I agree it is a backward step - I loved the ability to change the filename and the location where I wanted to store it. I'm hoping this will get fixed but in the meantime if you only want to change the location away from the default there is a tutorial showing you how to do this with a small registry change:

Hello everyone, I'm new on here so I apologize if someone has brought this up, but does Microsoft have any plans to update Edge to where it can "Save as" or simply "Open" a file rather than just downloading everything to the Downloads folder? I wonder why they left it out; seems like a basic function to input. Thanks!

Edge Settings.
After I change the "Open with" settings, I can't find a "Save".

I click the "Open with" to "A specific page or pages", change the Drop-down to "Custom", X out "about:start", in the "Enter a web address" space, I enter "
From there I'm lost. I don't see any "apply", "Save" or anything to keep the changed settings.

I quit Edge and open it up again and it opens back with the default MSN, etc.

Please tell me they goofed and there isn't a Save settings.

I seem to remember reading about a utility some years back that would allow one to save a game in progress, if the game didn't already have that feature. Does anyone know about such a utility? Also -- this little game (a card game called Tripeaks) can be played by more than one person at one time, but two people can't run two separate games on the same pc. Is there a way to insulate separate installations? The game runs well in Win 98 on a new, fast pc. Thanks.

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

I'm using Microsoft Edge on my Windows 10 machine, and after a while it'll just say "Do you want to close all tabs" as though someone has just pressed the close button. The thing is, the button hasn't been pressed (I'm not pressing it, there's something behind the scenes pressing it).
Now, I had recently had a virus, so in thinking the virus was to blame, I had run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Avast Anti-Virus to clear up the virus. They've been coming up clean, but it carried on. So I've reset Windows (keeping personal files intact), and this still hasn't fixed it. How can I stop this thing trying to close Microsoft Edge?

I have a Windows issue (happening on Win XP, Vista and 7), that when I try saving a document, normally the Save dialogue box appears and "Save as type: " would normally show the file extension. Instead, now it's only listing "All Files (*.*)" and adding the file extenison to the "File name: " box just above.
I have also checked / unchecked the "Hide extensions for known file types" in the "Folder Options", both settings not changing anything to the Save box.
Had anyone come across this issue, and how can I once again have the File extentions in the 'drop down' list instead of just "All Files"?
Thank you for any help.

A:Microsoft Office 2003 "Save as" dialogue box issue

Hello John, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The "Save as" available file extension options will vary per program. By default, there should be a drop down menu available where the "All Files (*.*)" is to select from what is available for it though. Since there isn't, you might consider a repair install.

Hope this helps,

Would you use the browser identified as 'Microsoft Edge' if more features was added to it (such as Extensions...)

I personally would as I think it would be neat to give a Microsoft product a chance but honestly they aren't even giving the browser a good start because there just isn't anything useful on it as other large mainstream browsers.

A:Microsoft Edge: "Would" you use it?

I've been using it everyday as my daily browser ever since Windows 10 came out. I love the speed of it and lightness. It's way faster for Chrome than me and more lightweight on resources. I am patient and can wait for extension support. I don't miss Chrome at all. Chrome sucked up all my RAM and CPU anyways and was slower than Edge.

I'm currently typing this reply from Microsoft Edge!

I'm probably one of the few very people using it as their everyday browser...

In any application under Win XP, when I use a Save As or Open dialog box, and click the down arrow next to the location box to search for the folder I want, the application never responds. Usually, I have to click the arrow a couple of times and then it sort of wakes up and responds, or the application crashes (the title bar of the dialog box will say "Not Responding".

Often, in the case of the Save As dialog, it won't say Save As in the upper left corner, only an "S" will appear there.

Seems like a memory issue or else something corrupt in the system. Before I shell out $35 to MS to have them fix something that shouldn't be broken, can anyone help???

Whenever I perform a "Save As..." or a "Save File" (e.g. with an email attachment), the pop-up save menu always defaults to NOT displaying the navigation pane(s) showing the existing folders/files in the target folder - see thumbnail below left.

To view the folder tree and folder/file list (see thumbnail below right), you have to click on the "Browse Folders" button at the bottom left.

Is there a registry hack or other setting that will reverse this setting for me?

P.S. This problem appears to occur when the application uses the standard Win7 explorer for the save - when using Photoshop, for example, it happily displays the folders and images etc.

Which version of Internet Explorer do you have? Is it 8, 9, or 10? I only have 8 and I didn't see any way of changing this in there and mine does not do what yours does, so I'm thinking that you have either 9 or 10. If you do, then I will install the version you have and take a look.

You see, this kind of thing can be changed in other browsers like Firefox, and it has been possible for as long as I can remember (several years).

does it do it when its saving to the disk just on the file command - you may have a disk or memory error

in the event viewer do you see anything which mayhelp

otherwise it may be worth unclicking the reboot on error

It's a mole hill of a problem, but it is a bit annoying to have to click on my principal drive ("C") every time I'm doing a "save". I have enclosed an excerpt of a screen shot of my "save as" window to display how the default drive being automatically selected is the "D" drive rather than the "C" drive that I use primarily. To be honest, I don't know whether this can be corrected by a software change, or whether it's the way the two hard drives are connected in my computer.

I'd appreciate it if anyone has a suggestion to offer if there is a way to make my "C" drive the default selection when I attempt to do a save function. Thanks

When I attempt to download and play (on Windows media Player) PPS/WMV files I am only given the option of "Save" or "Cancel". When I click "Save" the file is saved on my desktop and at the completion of the download Internet Explorer stops working.

How can I directly "Open" the PPS/WMV file, instead of saving it first? And, will this change eliminate IE from crashing? Thanks.

I've updated IE, reset settings, uninstalled reinstalled IE, tried mozilla firefox, still have same problems...

In internet explorer if I were to save a file as or an image as using the right click method, IE with completely shut down with no error reporting message. If I want to upload files or images to the internet and click on "browse", again IE closes. This happens as well when I want to extract files from an email and want to save the file as... and so on.

The only way for me to upload anything to the internet is through a bulk uploader if one is available??

When using mozilla, the error reports that there is an unknown error with the filepicker.

Any thoughts out there??

I have Win xp and two days ago I booted the computer to use Excel. I found that I now have about a 30 second delay anytime I try to open a file by clicking on the "look in" box, when I try to save by accessing the "save in" box or even typing in a web address in the open box in a web browser. This occurs in all programs (Word, Excell, IE etc.). I have been experiencing more than normal pop ups. Things were working pretty well three evenings ago; but, the next morning I ran into this problem. The computer was turned off over night. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

hello, title says it all. i'm worried about my personal files (docs etc.). somebody please clarify, whenever i used system restore, windows said "your personal files have not been changed". in which cases would that be so?

A:Can the "previous version" feature of win7 overwrite newer files?

Hello chatumao and welcome to Seven Forums.

From a Microsoft article about System Restore:

System Restore affects Windows system files, programs, and registry settings. It can also make changes to scripts, batch files, and other types of executable files created under any user account on your computer. System Restore does not affect personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos, so it cannot help you restore a deleted file. If you have backups of your files, you can restore the files from a backup.

I don't know what else to call it. On my old computer, I would go to Ebay and begin typing in the first letter of what I wanted to look at, and several words would appear that began with that letter (items I've looked at before), and then I could just click on the one I wanted. Now I have a new computer, and it doesn't do that anymore so I am constantly retyping in the words.

I'm thinking there must be a simple place you go to turn this feature on, but I have no idea where/how. Can someone help me, please? Thanks.

If you have several windows open on the taskbar, and you hover over the taskbar it shows you a "preview" of the windows that are open. Is there a way to disable that "preview" feature?

A:Can the "preview" windows feature on the taskbar be disabled?

I assume you mean the taskbar thumbs.

It requires a registry edit if you are confident enough to mess with registry settings.

Open regedit.exe and navigate to

There should be a d word value in the right hand side named


set its value to 1 to turn off thumbnail previews. Reset to 0 to re-enable thumb nail previews.

A registry (.reg) file to turn off thumbs should look like this

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


And to turn them back on

Something that has bothered me since I installed Win7 is the way WE handles folder navigation. When one clicks on the arrow next to a folder (left pane), often, the folder drops to the bottom of the left pane. And often, there is a short delay before it does so.

This irritates me to no end. I'll click on a an arrow, the sub folders drop out, I go to click on the desired folder, but suddenly the entire tree drops to bring the parent folder (whose arrow I clicked) to the bottom of the pane, leaving me to click on the wrong folder.

Does anyone find this useful in anyway? My first thought is "what were they thinking???"

At any rate, is there a hack available for this? I can live with it if I have to (as I have learned to live with Full Row Selection), but I'd really rather not.

Thanks for any ideas.


A:Windows Explorer Navigational drop "feature"

Don't quite understand the problem because I've been unable to duplicate the problem.

Suggest you set the Folder options shown in the attached snapshot.
I more suspect your problem is caused by other software running in the background. If you are running more than one anti-virus software then 100% remove all except for one of them.

My personal advice on av software is to 100% delete all of them and install Microsoft Security Essentials.

I would like to change "Windows Explorer" dafault white backgroup color without losing the Aero theme feature in Win7.  I know it can be done in a classic theme by changing the "window" color".  Could someone kindly help

A:How to change "Windows Explorer" dafault white backgroup color without losing the Aero theme feature?

Hi JD,
It seems the Windows Explorer background color cannot be changed in Windows 7. However, you can see if third party software such as
XYPLORER can achieve this.
Please Note: The third-party product discussed here is manufactured by a company that is independent of Microsoft. We make no warranty, implied or otherwise,
regarding this product's performance or reliability.
Also, you can change other window color by right clicking the desktop ->
Personalize -> Windows Color -> Advanced appearance settings… -> pull down the Item to
Window and choose the color you like -> Click OK.
Hope this helps.

I've suggested MMC (MS Management Console) > Add/Remove Snap In > but "Print Management" is not listed there either.

Is Print Management unavailable in Home Premium?
Is it only available if she logs in to the actual, Administer Account?

I have an Xbox and Windows8 and have been waiting anxiously for the "Play To" feature to work in xbox music and hopefully other things. Now that we have the new Xbox dashboard and the windows RTM has been updated, there is still no play to feature.

Am I missing something or do I have to do something special to enable it??

Smartglass is working ok with my xbox.
I have enabled play to on my xbox.

Xbox music on windows 8 still has no play to feature. Why?

What key should you hold down while inserting an "auto-load" CD to prevent auto-loading ??

I "heard" it was the Ctrl key, but it didn't work for me.

I'd like to ask you, whether there's a way (internally or via 3rd party software) to disable the feature which is slowly starting to drive me nuts. Namely, if you change your window layout to "list", you end up with several columns of files. If you try to click on a file which isn't in the leftmost column, the list will automatically scroll so that the column with the chosen file will become the leftmost. This effectively disables the ability to quickly rightclick a file that's not in the currently "focused" column.

Thank you for your time

A:A question regarding the "scroll on click" feature

Hi Treupp and welcome to the Forum
When I left click on a file in say the centre column then it stays in the centre when the pop up window with "Open" "Open with" and "Properties" at the bottom opens. If I left click on a file it just highlights it. If I double click on the file then, of course, it opens in my chosen program. I confirm I am in List view whilst doing this.
However if there is a file name in right hand column that cannot fit into the space to the edge of the Explorer window the file will scroll to the left to make it fit. Check you file name and have you got the Explorer window open to full screen?

Lately, I have been quite annoyed by Windows 7. Whenever I click to open an attachment from an e-mail, my taskbar flashes but the program doesn't open above my e-mail software. It makes it look like it didn't work, unless I'm paying close attention to see it flash. I've tried searching these forums and the Internet for this problem but I couldn't find anything. I have WIN7 Professional 64bit. I am quite an advanced user, so I know what I'm doing. I'd like to get this fixed on my machine as well as some others around me...

Hi rachelm920, welcome to 7F!

It would help if you told us what email program you work with, what browser, and if you know what file extensions are associated with the attachments you are trying to open..

By default, Microsoft Outlook blocks potentially unsafe attachment files (such as .bat, .exe, .vbs, and .js) that can contain viruses. You cannot see or access the attachments.

You, and your "others" may have to revert to using a network share or Web share that you can access.

Are there features on IE8 that allow faster downloading of pictures from web site?

On Opera I can right-click a picture, click "save to download folder" and it downloads the picture immediately, without displaying the "save as" dialog. It also always gives it a unique name without asking me if I want to overwrite.

The Opera method is MUCH faster when saving lots of pictures.

Is there such a feature on IE8?

I'm using IE 10.
I'd like to disable the prompt "Open, Save or Save as". Each time I tried to any document (ex. DOC or PDF file), IE will popup the follow prompt: "What do you want to do with ..." 
I saw there are some similar threads, but they are particular for SharePoint. 
Thank you!

A:How to disable "Open, Save and Save As" prompt

Each time I tried to any document (ex. DOC or PDF file), IE will popup the follow prompt: "What do you want to do with ..." 

You might be able to add Open with... to a right-click menu.   But that will probably only help for files which are local, e.g. don't need to be downloaded.  I think the reason for the prompt is essentially to help route the download and notify
users of the fact that if they just try to open it they will be opening a temporary file.  E.g. it typically always goes into the TIF first.  You could probably confirm and refine these ideas using ProcMon, e.g. looking for tests of registry
values and writes of files.
For example, I just did a BING search for  filetype:doc, did a right-click Open (as one of the other thread's responders had suggested) and still see the above prompt, because the file has not been downloaded yet.  That's IE's job so that's how
it does it, with a prompt.  But then since there is a filetype association for the .doc extension when I choose Open no more intervention is required (although as the prompt notes "The file won't be saved automatically." so if a user tries to update it,
e.g. a Word document or a spreadsheet, anything they do would only be preserved if they did a File Save As... or whatever those applications provide for that use case.)
In fact, that warning is probably the main reason for the prompt when such an explicit Open command is given.  It would be interesting to see if IE could take advantage of some information left in the filetype that would indicate that it wouldn't matter
if the file was temporary because it couldn't be reused anyway--for example, if the program associated with the open action could not update the file, examples being Acrobat Reader and WordViewer.   Again, I think the simplest way to find out would
be to trace what happens and make changes to try to exploit the possibilities implied by the trace.
On another tack you could see if there are any hints or tips given by using
FileTypesMan  from NirSoft.  E.g. it might help you find some particular values to try for EditFlags and BrowserFlags  (some obscure registry values which are somewhat obsolete but may still have at least some of their original

I'm on production, and I thought that after the anniversary that I'd be able to install extensions. But I can't find the "extensions" menu in Edge, nor can I install the ones I can find directly in the store (there, it says I need to update Windows).
I used the media creation tool to do a 100% clean install (not saving files, folders, or settings), and it's simply not there.

After upgrading(?) to Windows 10, any link in an email opens in "Edge" instead of "Chrome" like it used to. I used to depend on "Chrome's" Autofill feature to fill out shipping info, etc. Does "Edge" have an Autofill feature hidden where I haven't been able to find it? Can I uninstall "Edge" and revert back to "Chrome"? Any other ideas of how I can get "Autofill"?

A:"Edge" Took My "Chrome"

When you open Chrome, does it ask whether you want it to be your default browser?  If so, then click OK/Yes to make it your default browser.If that does not work, go to Control Panel, then to Default Programs, and set Chrome to be the default browser; I believe the screen has an option specifically for email links but I haven't actually confirmed this.  Oh, and I don't know whether you can remove Edge but I suggest leaving Edge alone.  As stated above, you just need to get the defaults set right.,151984.0.html

So, I was reading about hotkeys and tried "win+plus button" that was supposed to zoom in. It opened up the magnifier application, but it also seems to have changed the taskbar 'edge.' What I mean by that is that when I maximize a window it now expands to the whole screen, going under the taskbar, whereas before the bottom of the maximized window would coincide with the top of the taskbar.

I tried removing the transparency, but that didn't fix it. I've scoured the internet for solutions, but it is difficult to weed out the normal mundane customizations for this specific issue.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I unlocked the taskbar, moved it to another edge, and moved it back. Once that was done it reset.

I have Win10 64-bit. When using Edge and opening a bunch of different tabs (in today's case, lots of searches on different sites for why this doesn't work) I click on the browser X in the top right corner. I get the box that asks CLOSE ALL or CANCEL. I do NOT have the ALWAYS CLOSE ALL button checked, nor do I want it. But, when I do choose CLOSE ALL, it sometimes will, and other times it does nothing. So, I click it again. Still nothing. I can't figure out what the difference can be. Is there a limit on how many tabs it will close? Or?

Hello, everyone. I'm having troubles using the "Columns" feature in Word. I've created a table using "Columns" with 4 columns of information on the first half of my Word document. For the last half of my document which is on the same page as my 4-column table, I need to switch back to one column so I can write a paragraph. However, when I switch back from 4 to 1 column, all of my info. in my 4-column table screws up. I've tried several options on the "Columns" feature and everytime my table screws up. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Once you want to switch back to one column try going to insert, break. Try a cloumn break first, if that doesnt work try some of the other ones, one of them should do the trick.

On one of my PCs, installing KB3150513 did nothing obvious. I just installed it on a laptop and after installation Windows started downloading a "features update". Fearing that update was the Anniversary Update I killed it by shutting down. Now Windows is telling me that it couldn't install a fix because of a power off (which was true) and gives me the option of "Retry". Well, there is no way I want to retry if that was the AU. (Maybe eventually but not now for the laptop.) How do I tell if that was the AU? and if so, how do I block the installation? Is there any update id that I can hide associated with the AU? If I back out and hide KB3150513 will that accomplish the same thing? How
