Automatically downloads


Hello, I am running a latest version of internet explorer.Normally, If I were to click on a download link, the browser would ask me the destination of the file (my documents by default), however recently I have noticed that when I click a link to download a file, the file automatically downloads to temporary folder, meaning it is opening on the spot. The only method to fix this problem is to right click "save target as...".Is their any other way to return this to normal? Answer would be amazing help
