Shortcut to Temp Internet File needed


I just downloaded and installed IE7. Everything went smooth. Until the other day, I wanted a copy of a video and the "Right Click is Diabled" message appeared.

This is not a problem except that it took me a few minutes to locate my Temp Internet Folder. Its really hidden in IE7. Anyway I dont like to keep "Hide Protected Operating System Files (Recommended)" unchecked.

Can I unhide the Temp Internet Folder or make a simple shortcut to it, if so how?

There's absolutely no harm in unchecking "Hide Protected Operating System Files (Recommended)"; I have done it for years on all my computers.

Right click a blank area of the Desktop and select New > Shortcut.
In the dialog that pops up enter this as the path:

C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR-USER-NAME\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

Replace YOUR-USER-NAME with your user name.

I can't help but ask what accessing the TIF has to do with getting a copy of a recent video or the problem with your right-click being disabled?

I thought looking in the History files would be the place to find a recently played web based video.

Could you please explain?

ps. I relocate my TIF to a different HD to keep the drive images smaller when making backups. Mine is at E:\Temporary Internet Files and very easy to find. That reduces size of the incremental drive images of Acronis True Image by about half.

Thanks Tony T, I also see that I can assign a HotKey from there. Thanks again.

surferdude2 If you can play video or audio on your computer, then you can save it. If Right Click is disabled, then play the video or audio file and allow it to play all the way through. Once its finished DO NOT shut down Media Player. Go to your Temporary Internet Folder and locate the file. Right Click and copy it. Paste it to a permanent location. You can now shut down media player.

Its that simple, I've been doing it for years. This works with most video files. There are a few that require a slightly different procedure, but the temp internet file still needs to be accessed.

Thank you ranger for that explanation. That's good to know even if I may never use it. That's why these one-eyed monsters are so fascinating!

All the best, Dude.

Optionally, if the Web page author uses a script to disable the context menu (rt click), you can just download the file directly. In IE, go to View menu > Source and use Find to search for the name of the video in the Web page source code. Paste the url in the addrress bar or create a small html file with a link to the video.
Code:
example of a video at www.domain.com:
<a href="media/video/video-file.wmv">Watch Video</a>
Search the source code for video-file.wmv. The url to put in address bar would be www.domain.com/media/video/video-file.wmv. Or put this in a Notepad doc and save as video-file.html:
<a href="http://www.domain.com/media/video/video-file.wmv">Watch Video</a>. You will be able to rt click "save target as" and download the video directly.

And depending upon the type of video, you can often use File menu > Save as in Media Player, after the video has fully downloaded.
