  • Thats a good compilation of tricks and tips for IE9. Thanks for sharing. The tool for creating websites for IE9 did help indeed!

  • Hey Amit,
    I downloaded IE9 and am still trying to get used to the different setup.
    Anyway, the biggest problem I am having so far is that when you download something, it goes Directly to the Download folder.
    I’m sure it’s not a problem for most users, but I have 5 different sites I run and Download the SQL files to my computer, each to it’s own folder.
    HOW can I direct where the files are downloaded?
    I looked around and came up with nothing so far.
    Any ideas?

    • Hi Joe,

      Click on the gear icon (top right) select “View Downloads”, click on the “Options” button Click “Browse” from the Download Options window and select the desired folder to be used. Click on the “Select Folder” button and you are done.

      You may also want to check TweakI9 application included in the post as it also has the ability to change your download directory.
      Hope this helps!!
