I cannot download an attachment in Blackboard.

When downloading an attachment (Word Doc, PowerPoint, etc)  in Blackboard Internet Explorer you will get a yellow bar at the top of the browser screen.

To fix this issue:

  1. Click on "Tools" in the top menu bar (right hand side in IE 7)
  2. Select "Internet Options" from the drop-down list
  3. Choose the "Security" tab from the new window.
  4. Click the "Trusted Sites" icon
  5. Click "Custom Level"
  6. Change Level to "Low", then Click "Ok"
  7. Click the "Sites" button.
  8. Type "https://learning.dcollege.net" (without the quotation marks) in the "Add this site" area
  9. Click the "Add" button.
  10. Click Close
  11. Click OK
  12. Close and reopen your browser for the changes to take effect.
