    Hello,

    Everytime I try to download a zip file, it's downloaded and opened. May have
    clicked the always open button
    I'd like to get back the "Save As" option.

    How can I do this?

    You failed to mention what operating system you are using?

    For Windows XP:
    1. Open Windows Explorer and click on Tools||Folder Options...||File Type.
    2. Select the "ZIP" file type from the list and click on the Advanced
    button.
    3. Put a checkmark in the box next to "Confirm open after download".

    For Windows Vista see:
