Setting a default download location

Overview

You can set a default download location on your desktop app. If you use the web app, your browser has its own way of handling download locations. Please check the corresponding setting in your browser.


Instructions

Step 1

Go into your Settings and select My preferences.

Step 2

Scroll down to Download location. 

Step 3

Click Change. A window will appear. Navigate to your desired download location and click Open.


To prompt a custom save path for just this one time, hold down shift and click on the download icon. This feature is only available on the desktop app.

  • Thanks for making this possible to customize, but we think it would be much better if the default location was ~/Downloads (and the windows equivalent) instead of the hidden temp folder.

  • Paul Jackman It should be below what your screen shot shows. If you don't see it, try refreshing your app. If you're on the Windows desktop app, try downloading the newest one here (launched a new framework last week).
