Open or Save?
Users will need to select if they want to Open the document with existing software available on their computer, or Save it to their computer via their internet browser Downloads.
#1: "Open With"
In the example here, the Speed Resource is a .xls document, so the software has already selected to open the .xls file using the Microsoft Office Excel software that reads xls files. Alternatively, if the file was a .png or a .flv then the software would use the existing image, or video software to open the file. If a user wanted to use different software to open the file, they would select the Other and then choose the programme as shown in the image in the "Open with chosen software" step below.
or #2: "Save File"
If a user selects to save the file, it will be saved to the Downloads List (as shown in the next Step).
#3: Click OK.
Users can also choose different software to open the file
Your computer will automatically try and open the file using the correct programme. However, you can select to choose a different software programme.
If a user selected to open the file with an "Other" file a Choose Helper Application selection box appears. Select the application/software program that you want to use to open the file (as shown in the image here). Then click the "OK" button.
Save File: the file is saved to the Downloads list
If you chose to save the file by clicking the selection box beside Save File in the previous image. The file will then be downloaded to the "Downloads" list on the users internet browser.
