    I can not figure out how to stop OSX from launching downloads right after they are finished. Can anyone please help me stop this from happening. It is rather annoying.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you're using Safari, go to Preferences and uncheck (under the General tab), "Open 'Safe' files after downloading"
