    Not sure if this is a feature or not, but I couldn't find a way to disable it.

    When I was doing a mass download of my website. Anytime a MS Word or Excel document was downloaded when fetch was finished with that file it would then preceed to _open the file_ in the revelent application. The only option I could find would be to remove the .doc and .xls extensions from the internet config control panel.

    Is there a way to fix this behavior? Or if not a way to config fetch to give us the option of having the file automatically open or not?

    You should be able to stop it from doing that by editing the .doc and .xls entries in the Internet control panel. You'll need to press the "Show Advanced Options" button, and then choose "Save to File" from the "Handle by" pop-up menu.

    Does that work?
