    (if the download starts or dialogue opens, the extra tab should close itself, depending on Browser).

    Which Browser, IE, Chrome, Firefaux?
    What's the difference? The file open and save dialogs are in Windows DLLs, not in the application. It's obvious W8 still has some sticky bits.

    D'oh! Its true what you say but IE handles the change-off differently than Chrome. Chrome always downloads the file straight to the downloads folder, IE gives the Yellow Dialogue Box on the Bottom. Firefaux does it similar to Chrome.

    That's not the point. The point is, if these dialogs are broken, the effect is trans-application. I can figure out work-arounds myself thanks.

    Is it IE that gives you the problem or all browsers?

    Sounds like it is a Universal problem then, Do ya know which DLL it is? Let us know how you did it.

    Never mind. If nobody else has noticed then it's likely fixed by the Service Pack.

    Hey I'm just trying to agree with you here, I'm sure it happens but I havent seen it on 4 machines, thats why I asked about your browsing and clicking practices and browser and mentioned mine.

    If this happen on all 8 and 8.1 machines you touch, it's your style of browsing, if only on your machine, it's a corruption. In which case Try doing a DISM restore command followed by an SFC.
