    Allocating Names to Downloaded Files


    I routinely download data files for analysis in Excel. These files arrive with the same default name and I am required to change the name or close the previously downloaded file.
    I have tried in vain to find the setting that will cause Windows to suffix the default name of a downloading file if a previous file with the unsuffixed name is open.

    Example: I have open a downloaded file named 'Data'. I initiate another download and I want Windows to proceed by automatically naming the new file 'Data(1)'

    How do I achieve this?

    :)

    Hi SoNam,

    Thank you for providing details about your concern. We would like to ask for more information so we can further assist you with your concern:

    • Can you send us a screenshot of your file explorer showing the new location of your Desktop?
    • Can you tell us the task that you're trying to perform before you noticed that the Desktop location was changed to C:?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Meanwhile, try restoring the Desktop folder to its original location. To do this:

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Go to the location where you have saved the Desktop folder.
    • Right-click on the Desktop folder.
    • Click Properties.
    • Click on Location tab.
    • Click Restore Default button. It will move back the selected folder to the original location.
    • Click Apply.
    • Click Yes.
    We look forward to your response.

    Allocating Names to Downloaded Files

    Hi ivath, welcome to Tenforums

    this is exactly how's working for me. Could this be a problem with file without extension? Do you have default setting to "save file" or open with default program?

    System is attaching numbers to the file name, no matter if the file have extension or not, or if the file is already opened.. Check that you want to save file... Could be application problem - how are you downloading files?
