How do I get my dialogue box back?

by zeebell / July 27, 2007 3:53 PM PDT

Ya know that little window that pops up while something is downloading? Someone checked the box and now that window disappears. I really would prefer for it to ask me. Because sometimes I like to open it right away. How can I change that back? It disappears to quick for me to uncheck that box.

She has XP.
