    When downloading something why there is no choice for "save as"?


    I noticed when I try to open some attachments, I get downloaded and then opens.
    I am not presented with a choice as in the other OS; "Save As".
    Am I missing some thing in here?

    Regards

    :)

    Dell 926 Printer and WIN 10

    I downloaded WIN 10 and now my Dell 926 Printer won't print. The print driver is downloaded. Unzipped. Scan works. In Microsoft print queue there is no choice for "print", just save to PDF. In download support instructions under properties no "compatibility
    mode" available. Setting is administrator. No choice for "all users". How do I get "print" as a choice in the print queue?

    Is this when you are using Edge or generally? With Edge there are options missing from the 'right click' and 'Save As' is one of these, except for pictures it seems.

  6. I just opened a PDF on a website while using Edge.

    While inside the boundary of the PDF page, I right-clicked and got one option: Save As. I was then able to save this to a folder. (see screenshots below). If I right-clicked outside the boundary of the PDF page (the grey area in my screenshot) I did not get the 'Save As' option.
