566682, Save/Open Dialog Box

I was trying to help my sister with a problem she always has with opening .pdf files in Email. I just set up a new computer for she and her husband with two profiles. She has the problem, he doesn't so I am convinced that it is something she always does to create the problem because she had the same problem with her old computer. I figured out what she had done and now I have the same problem myself in trying to recreate the problem so I could tell her how to fix it. It is probably an easy fix but I don't know the proper questions to ask to search for the answer. In the Save/Open dialog box that pops up you have the choice to select save or open. There is also a check box to always apply the selection. I figured out that she has been checking this box to always open the file. The unintended consequence of doing this is the Save/Open Dialog box never comes up again. How do I get it back? I suspect it is going to require a registry edit or it is so simple that I can't imagine what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
