Windows 10: Problem with Changing Download Option in Chrome

    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.

    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.
