    Change download location


    Hi,
    I have a fresh install, dual booting with Windows 7 and I just notice that my default download location folder for Windows 10 is set to my download folder in Windows 7.

    How can I change it to be set to Windows 10.

    Hopefully screen shot can explain better .

    :)

    Change download location from AppData

    Unfortunately, the issue with Windows 10 App Data is not resolved.

    For example, today I downloaded and image with instructions to Firefox to open it in Photoshop, which it did.



    I then saved the downloaded image in a folder of my choice.

    However, I then did a general search for all files downloaded today and two picture files came up.

    One in the folder I selected and another in:

    C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local\Temp.



    In addition, I found a few other files that I never intended to save in AppData permanently, among other misc. files.



    Firefox continue to ask me which software I want to use to when downloading files but it seems two things are happening at the same time i.e. files are being open as per my instructions in addition to being saved in AppData.



    I can only guess that the best thing to do is to clear the AppData regularly but wonder what is the best way to do this and are there any precautions that I should keep in mind?



    Thanks.

    Even though I'm not looking to change any Edge settings, that is useful to know. Thanks for publishing the tutorial *Smile
