    I do not use Edge, but here is one suggested method (it dates from Aug 2015, but I presume the steps are still valid):

    The download folder can be changed in File Explorer, the former Windows Explorer, directly.

    1. Open File Explorer by clicking on the folder icon in the Windows Taskbar, or with the shortcut Windows-e.
    2. Locate the Download folder on the left side, right-click on it and select properties from the context menu.
    3. Switch to the location tab in the Downloads properties.
    4. There you find the current location listed. If you want to set a new folder without moving existing files, simply enter the new path, e.g. d:\downloads and hit apply afterwards.
    5. If you want all existing files to be moved, click on move instead, pick a new folder location, and select yes when the move folder prompt appears.
    6. Microsoft Edge will use the new folder for all downloads from that moment on.
