Posted June 25, 2010 by Rob Rogers in Google

If you want to change where Chrome deposits downloaded files on your computer, you can change the default location or even have Chrome ask you where to save each file before it is downloaded.


1. Open Google Chrome.

2. Click the wrench icon in the upper-right corner of the toolbar and select Options.

3. Go to the Under the Hood tab. In the Download location section, click the Browse button and locate the desired download directory. If you want to have more control over where each file is downloaded to, check the Ask where to save each file before downloading checkbox.

4. Click the Close button.
