    Saving from Internet Browers

    I'm having trouble saving anything off of internet browers. This issue isn't limited to Microsoft Edge, Chrome, or Firefox. It's all of them. Sometimes I can save something on the first try, other times the saving window freezes and I can't save anything. I have to exit out of it, try to save it again, and then I save it if the window hasn't frozen. Sometimes the window won't unfreeze for several tries the current winner is five tries. I have to continuously click the exit button before I can exit the save window. Is there any way to fix this?

    To address this concern, we suggest that you follow these steps on how to automatically save a file in Internet Explorer 11:

    • In Internet Explorer, click Tools.
    • Click the View Download options.
    • You will see a popup containing the file that you downloaded.
