    excel in explorer

    we are constantly been directed by dfes cfbt etc etc to links to excel spreadsheets which open in explorer i can't seem to find a way to download them offline. I'm not sure if LEA have blocked .xls and as i don't give the staff right click (link)download as rights i need to find a way to do this another way.
    I can bring up the excel toolbar in an explorer window but it won't allow me to save it ? any ideas?

    cheers as always in advance.

    Re: excel in explorer

    thanks Nij.UK it works brilliantly well here it is for everyone else.

    To configure Internet Explorer to open Office files in the appropriate Office program by using the Folder Options tool: 1. Open My Computer.
    2. On the Tools menu (or the View menu), click Folder Options (or click Options).
    3. Click the File Types tab.
    4. In the Registered file types list, click the specific Office document type (for example, Microsoft Excel Worksheet), and then click Advanced (or click Edit).
    5. In the Edit File Type dialog box, click to clear the Browse in same window check box (or click to clear the Open Web documents in place check box).
    6. Click OK.
