Ask where to save each file before downloading

February 7, 2015   /   by Marco  / Categories :  Google, Software, Technology, TIP AND TRICKS

By default, when you click on a file to download it will save it in the download folder e.g c:\users\[account name]\Downloads

If you want to be a bit more organised like me, I save files in a specific location. That way I don’t have to move the files at a later stage. Each browser has their own way of doing things so this option is different in each program you use. Below you will find the steps required to enable this feature in each browser:

Google Chrome

Click on the 3 lines at the top right hand corner

Chrome 3 bars

Click Settings

Chrome Ask where to save each file before download

 

Click Show Advanced settings

Chrome Advanced Settings

Go to the downloads section and make sure “Ask where to save each file before downloading” is selected

Chrome Ask where to save each file before download

Now every time you download a file in Google Chrome, you will be prompted to select a location.

Firefox

Click on options

Firefox Options

Click General

Firefox General

In the Downloads section click on Always ask me where to save files

Firefox always ask me where to save files

Now every time you download a file in Firefox, you will be prompted to select a location.

Internet Explorer

Click on the wheel at the top right hand corner

Internet Explorer Wheel

Click Internet Options

Internet Explorer Settings

Click Security
