    I'm Running W7 at the moment and My FF defaults to "no"

    If you're using chrome,

    Ok, must have just been a dream. I use FF, but have chrome onboard as well. I'll probably try to find an ext. for FF to do what I want. Thanks again.

    Thanks, I've seen that dialogue before, but now I use Teracopy which gives a different dialogue for intra-system moves and copies. The issue comes from internet browser downloads, but the alert is not from the browser

    Hello, as an option, could you use left arrow and enter? Or hit the letter Y to confirm? I have tried using save as from Notepad to save as the same file name. Both those options work, hopefully one is suitable for you and your needs?

    Sure, that works. Looking for ways to bend personal computing to my will is just my personal mania. Thanks for the tip.

    I do love a good bending of personal computing myself. I had a little think and look for solution, think I might have something for you.

    My initial thought was, could the mouse be programmed to send a keyboard letter out, like Y. If one could make a double right click, send out Y, that might make things quicker.

    So, I found this: AutoMouser - AUTO MOUSE & KEYBOARD 100+ / Wiki / AutoMouser - Best Free Auto Clicker

    It has many functions, including these:
    Keyboard clicks
    + All English letters: A-Z and a-z
    + All numbers: 0-9
    + 30+ Other symbols: !?.,@#$%^~&(){}[]:;”’|/\<>…
    + 20+ Button clicks: Esc, Tab, Delete, Enter, Space, Up, Down, F1, F2, F3…

    Now, one thing I will mention, I have never used that before, so only going by info on their page.

    There's an idea! Time to play...

    One thing you could try, more for amusement than anything, is to write e.g. an Autohotkey script that sends left arrow to that dialogue when it is detected.

    Hey, I HAVE auto hotkey. That could work very well. Thanks Dalchina! So many good workarounds in this thread. A shame Windows requires that, but it is kinda fun to fiddle.
