    Stop unarchive
    Hi,

    When I download a .zip file it automatically unarchives on completion. Which is a nice feature - except that I want to download a file and leave it zipped.
    (Re-zipping it saves as a larger file for some reason.)

    How can I temporarily disable this feature?

    Thanks for suggestions
    Mike

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Although you didn't specify, I assume you are using Safari to download this file.

    If that is the case, go into Safari's preferences and UNCHECK the "Open 'safe' files after downloading" box at the bottom of the "General" pane of the preferences. There ya go.
