Restore "Always Ask" prompt

    I cleared the "Always ask before opening this type of file" option for
    PDFs, but now I want to restore it. The two common solutions, an option
    in the File Types tab and the AttachmentExecute registry key, only seem
    to be valid for Windows XP and Windows Vista, respectively (I'm using
    Windows 7).

    How can I restore the prompt that asks if I want to save or open PDFs?

    Under Windows XP, you would use Folder Options -> Filetypes and use the
    Advanced button to edit the .pdf filetype association to reenable the
    "Confirm open after download" option.

    For Windows 7, and if the method is significantly different that you cannot
    figure out based on how it used to work in XP, the Microsoft community for
    Windows 7 is found at:
