    Cannot specify where to download files

    In Windows 10, I need to download sound files from a web site onto my portable device.
    The files are downloaded, but I cannot specify where I want them to go; they all go to C:\user\downloads, without pausing to ask me.
    Thanks for any help.

    I guess you are using the new Edge browser. Yes, there are lots of functionality and settings missing yet from Edge. Hopefully, these things will be added in future updates. In they mean time, why not use a different browser? Google Chrome works fine for me.

    Thanks, Jocke.
    Yes, that happened with the new Edge.
    I'll do what you suggest; Chrome works o.k. for me too.
    But will the Microsoft people ever notice, and then fix, that little failure in Edge?
