    I want to be able to download any file in the FileExplorer, so when i click on a file it does not need to be opened in a Window.
    How can I manage this? I tried to use the handler.ashx but i don't know how i can manage it, and when i click on a folder to switch to that folder it raises an error.

    Pleas help, many thanx!

    Hi Carsten,

    I believe that this online demo will be of help. Also I recommend you to check the "FORCE THE BROWSER TO DOWNLOAD THE FILES" and "USEFUL LINKS" sections in this KB article for more information on the subject.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    I want to be able to configure my FileExplorer so that it will prompt the user to either preview a file or force the file to be downloaded. I am trying to access the demo hyperlink that you embedded here in your last post, but the hyperlink can't find the page, or page "not found".

    Can you provide me with a new hyperlink?

    Thank you,

    I can't seem to find a working link for the fileexplorer demo to download files. They're all dead links

    Hello Raoul,

    Indeed the link to the desired demo was broken, but it is fixed now and you should be able to access it with no problems here:
