Calls for 'Authentication' when I try to open .iso download


I have Fedora running on this old desk top. Downloaded an .iso file (a Windows 7.0 actually) and wanted to burn it to DVD. I see the download but when I click on it it requests an authentication password. All I ever entered since running this distro is the password on startup.

I'm not sure I understand what is happening here. When you say "click on it" where are you clicking and why? How did you download the file and what are you trying to do with it?
