Safari would auto open files downloaded from the internet.
This is not generally regarded as a "safe" procedure.
Not totally sure what you mean by new files created there by another application.
Used to be, whenever I downloaded a new file to the desktop or one was created there by another application, it opened automatically in whatever application I had specified in the "Get Info" pane. Now, new files no longer auto open. Is there a way to restore this feature? I'm running OS 10.6.6 on a Core 2 Duo MacBook.
Thanks in advance...Roger
