Maybe you’ve encountered the problem when all images, videos, mp3s or another types of files downloaded in Chrome open automatically. There is a quick solution to stop this annoying feature.
Why the downloaded files are opened by default
It happens after you (accidently) flagged the definite type of downloaded files to open:
How to prevent Chrome from opening the downloaded files
1. Go to Settings of Chrome.
2. Scroll the settings page to bottom.
3. Click on Show advanced settings:
4. Find the Downloads area.
5. Click on Clear auto-opening settings:
From now on any downloaded files will not be opened by default.
Note that you cannot disable auto-opening for a definite type of files. You can only cancel the auto-opening of all types together.
