    Hi! Can anybody point me to the location of the folder IE-6 uses to download
    pdf and Word attachments before it opens them up in the browser please?
    I tried searching but a bit confused by the results.
    It's my understanding that before a file downloaded from the internet is
    displayed, it's stored in a temp folder. Am I correct?

    Many thanks in advance,

    --Michael

    Perhaps the "attachments" are a poorly chosen word. What I meant was to find
    out where the pdf's are stored when they are displayed in the browser. For
    example, I click on a link that points to a pdf file and it opens up for me.
    Sorry for confusion.

    (which is a hidden folder).
