    Welcome to the forums!

    Each browser has its own settings to navigate to set the download folder.

    Are you using Edge? I use a different browser.

    I am using Chrome as my browser. I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. When I downloaded using windows 7 they would a where I wanted it saved. Does not seem to be the case with 10.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    Hi:

    Yes, it would help to know which browser you are using.

    I do not use Edge, but this tutorial explains the default downloads destination folder for Edge and -- if desired -- how to change it: Microsoft Edge Downloads Folder - Change in Windows 10

    If you are referring to another browser, please tell us, so that we can provide the instructions for that browser.

    Cheers,
    MM

    There should be a hammer icon with Google Chrome to get to the settings; unless that has changed.

    Am not familiar with the "hammer" icon. What does it look like and where on the screen might it be.

    We'll need to wait for someone more facile with Edge to weigh in, but....

    Currently, Microsoft Edge does not include a setting to change the default downloads folder.
    Microsoft Edge Downloads Folder - Change in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    According to the tutorial, the only way to change that now is with a regedit.

    If I read the tutorial correctly, I think there *will* be a way to change the location -- perhaps through a group policy? -- after the Anniversary Update (aka "Redstone") in a few weeks.
    This option is available starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316.
    Perhaps someone will be able to add to this information or to correct me, if I am wrong.

    Cheers,

    OOPS!

    My bad -- I thought you were using Edge.
    Alas, I do not use Chrome, either.
    But I'm sure someone who does can help you designate a download folder location.

    On you Chrome browser:

    Click on the three bars icon and select Setting.
    On Settings click Show Advanced Setting.
    On Downloads section inside Advanced Setting, Check "Ask where to save each file before downloading."
