    Surface RT with IE 11.

    When I click 'download file' option on a web site (like Comcast's voice mail manager) I only see 'open', 'save' and 'cancel' options. There apparently is no 'save as' option like I get on my laptop pc.

    The file downloads to the downloads folder using the generated, ugly name...

    Am I missing some way to get to a 'save as' option?

    Hi, daniielrp,

    It would be helpful if you post a link to a download that anyone should be able to access, then we can test it.

    Metro. I hadn't thought to try desktop so I just did and that does allow 'save as' - guess I'll have to work from there.

    I think you meant to send this to me. If you want a sample web site that lets you download files try this one and choose any brochure;
    Security, Privacy, and Online Safety Brochures and Fact Sheets
