Solution 27510: Calculator files opening in text format on a new page in Safari® Web Browser.

Why does Safari® web browser open calculator files as text on a new page when I attempt to download a calculator file?

The Safari® web browser attempts to open any files it is able to within its browser, unfortunately this causes Texas Instruments calculators files to be open within the web browser. To download a file using the Safari® web browser please follow the steps listed below:

• Hover your mouse over the calculator file download link you wish to download
• Next press and hold the [Control key] and then [Mouse Click] the download link
• A menu should appear with options, select the option [Download Linked File]
• If you recieve a message "Would you like to append the extension" choose the option [Don't Append]

Once you have done this the file should download to your computer without issue.
