How to Have Chrome Ask Where You Want to Download Files
Last Updated a year ago
Chrome defaults to saving all files in the Downloads folder. To have it prompt you to choose a location and name the file before saving, follow these instructions:
- Open Chrome
- Click on the three dots in the top-right corner (aka "the Hamburger")
- Click Settings
- Click Advanced at the bottom of the screen.
- Under Downloads switch "Ask where to save each file before downloading" to on
- From hereon out, whenever you go to download a file, a window will pop up asking where you'd like to save the file and what you want to title it.
