    asking download location for each download in edge


    I use Microsoft edge for most of my work.
    I download files many times from the internet we all do.
    Now the problem is each time I need to save files in different different locations. In my settings inside edge here is how they look

    is this same kind of thing possible for Microsoft edge that means when I download anything edge asks me each time where to save the download?

    Hello Sandila,

    Yes, you can set Microsoft Edge to always ask where to save at.

    You can use the tutorial below depending on if you have Microsoft Edge (what your screenshots look like) or Microsoft Edge Chromium installed.

    I read your link but my question is not how to enable download location. That is already enabled. What I want is each time when I download a file edge should ask where do I want to save file . I do not want to save each file in default download location.

    Currently all kind of files download in default location and that setting in Edge which says ask me what to do with each download is enabled but my program deviates from normal behavior. Hence I have to ask this silly question here. That setting is on but edge is not asking where to download the file each time (that is why I gave google chrome screenshot) as it should be doing with that setting ON.

    To get a choice of location in Edge, don't click Save. Click the up-arrow next to it and choose 'Save as'.
