    Right now there is no setting to change to direct the download to another location other than the download folder.

    You can add a registry value to specify a download folder.

    Run: regedit

    Go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wek yb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Main

    Add a new string called: Default Download Directory

    Change the value to the folder you want, e.g. C:\Users\coldy\Desktop
