Press Save Button IE Download Prompt via Custom Functions

I have managed to erase all sendkeys from my sub to pull a spreadsheet from IE except for hitting the "save" button on the download prompt at the end. I know there are many posts about this, and I have read them all, but today I found what looks like a great function, but I can't seem to adapt it/get it to work.

Note: This is not a URL I can call w/ Params, but I enter information on the page and hit button Excel which then spits back a download prompt for a spreadsheet.

I'm also not sure if the below code is meant to run on the "Download" full window (CTRL + J) or the prompt bar down at the bottom, but I tried both without luck. I can open the "full window" if needed, but it would require sendkeys which I'm looking to eliminate, but currently the code naturally just displays the download "bar" at the bottom of the window.

Here is some links:
