    Edge has stopped remembering previous download location


    Hi

    I have noticed since recent updates that Edge will no longer remember the recent download location after one has navigated away from the default Downloads folder and one wishes to add more files to the chosen folder. Edge now continues to default to the Download folder. Previously it would remember the previous download location until it was changed manually or the cache was cleared.

    I am fully aware of the ability to permanently choose a seperate folder option. This is not suitable for my needs.

    Cheers

  3. applications do not remember previous save locations

    Hi Clifferton,

    Based on the details that you have provided, there is a way for you to determine whether the save location issue is program-related or due to the Windows 10 upgrade. To help you isolate it, we suggest testing other programs or apps and see if the previous
    save location shows when saving files. If the issue only happens with a specific program, then we encourage you contact the manufacturer for better guidance about their product.

    If the the issue also happens to other programs or apps, we would appreciate if you can provide us additional details to help us provide the appropriate solution: Kindly answer the following:

    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • Aside from upgrading, have you also made any recent changes to your PC?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?
    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Edge won't remember Gmail passwords

    Hi Ujjal,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you a question:

    • Did you check the option “Remember the password” option at the sign in page?


    I suggest you clear the Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue.

    To do so perform the steps below.



    • Open Edge browser and click on the More actions icon i.e.“” located on the top right corner of the window.
    • Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    • Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files
      and click on Clear.
    • Close the browser and login to Gmail account and check if the issue is resolved.


    Write back to us for further assistance, we will be happy to assist



    Thank you.
