I downloaded a song in IE10 from my Google Play account, and was clicking a bit too fast so instead of choosing "save as" I just went straight to "open file". Well, the new music player in Windows 8 hides any menus that the old media players had, so I am not sure how to save the song currently loaded into it. What I had to do to get the file was open up the Temporary Internet Files folder and snag it from there, but shouldn't there be a better option within the music player itself...? Anyone aware of how to get more menu options in "Xbox Music" to do this?

You can't save a streaing song. JUst download the song again. – Ramhound May 17 '13 at 11:09
It wasn't I said the file was downloaded but only to Temporary Internet Files because I didn't click Save As in IE. I just want to know if there is a file-like menu in Windows 8 – starmandeluxe May 17 '13 at 19:18
Also, the reason I can't download the song again is because Google Play limits you to two downloads per song. – starmandeluxe May 17 '13 at 19:26
The Music application looks at your My Music library folder. You could have just searched for the file name, artist, ect. – Ramhound May 17 '13 at 22:37
That's true, I suppose that could be a workaround. Thanks – starmandeluxe May 18 '13 at 0:37
