Why can't the user open the downloaded files like in Firefox, IE or the original Edge?

It's really annoying to download every file and then delete it instead of just open it.

Thanks

I am able to open/run downloaded files from Edgemium just fine. What happens when you click the file in the downloads bar at the bottom of the browser?

@EbonJaeger ah, I meant to open directly instead of saving the file and then opening it.
Something like this option:

@Shlomix Ohhhh I gotcha! Yeah, that would indeed be nice to have back.

@Shlomix Eghad, yes. This is a must-have feature for Edge; it's not negotiable. There are too many setup files & updates that do not require saving.

 

Allow "Open" instead of "Save As", Edge team! I'm even OK if this is a flag (i.e., you don't want people saving (and subsequently losing) Word documents in $TEMP--I've been bitten on that!).

any response from the dev team?
