    Problem with Changing Download Option in Chrome


    I want to change the settings in my Chrome Browser (latest version, double-checked) so that I am ALWAYS asked where I want a download to go before it starts downloading. In the advanced settings option box, I have the following:

    Location
    C:\Users\George\Downloads CHANGE
    Ask where to save each file before downloading (Dot button graphic, blue, set to right-hand side)

    But when I go to a web page to get a download, it automatically saves it to the default location. I'm using an ASUS tablet/keyboard as well as an HP desktop.

    How do I change the setting? Thank for your time and help.

    :)

    Disable Preferences So That PDF Does Not Open As A Web Page

    Sorry Merle, you cannot stop that behavior in Edge, it is inbuilt, useless in its functionality and cannot be changed!

    That leaves you with 2 options:

    • Download the PDF and read it offline in Adobe Reader
    • Change your browser to Chrome, this option can be disabled in Chrome:

    • One Time changes that need to be made to Chrome to open PDF's in Adobe Reader
    • In the Chrome address bar, type chrome://plugins
    • Disable Chrome PDF Viewer

    I Hope this Helps!

    can't open .exe files windows 10

    Yes, I changed the "_" back to a "." in the executable file of the downloaded Chrome browser, which was downloaded using Microsoft's browser. I was then able to install Chrome and make it my default browser. Then, using Chrome, I downloaded the other
    programs and installed them with no problem. Thank you for the solution to a vexing problem.

  4. Problem with Changing Download Option in Chrome

    Hi gkaywood. Welcome to the TenForums @gkaywood

    When you download do you get a "File Explorer" window that you can navigate to a different location or does it just download, no window.
