Change the default location for IE9 downloading files

Original title: IE9 downloading files

I do not want to use the default location for my downloads.  I want to pick where I save things.  How do I do that?



Hi Ytawni,


You can try the following steps to change IE9 Default "Save" Download Location.

a. Open Internet Explorer 9.

b. Click on the gear icon in the upper right corner, then click on View downloads. (see screenshot below)

NOTE: You could also press CTRL + J instead.

c. Click on the Options link.

d. Click on the Browse button.

e. Navigate to and select the folder that you want IE9 to use as the default download location, then click on the Select Folder button.

f. Click on OK.

g. Click on Close.


Hope this information is helpful.
