Save Target in MS Edge

The right click, "save target as," function is one of the strongest and most used functions in Internet Explorer. But MS Edge doesn't seem to offer the same option. Right click only gets a short list of 3 possibilities. Left click just opens or runs the file you are trying to save. Surely there must be a way to "save target as" in MS Edge. Can someone tell me how?

I am afraid to inform you that MS Edge don’t have ‘save target as’ option. I suggest you to use Internet Explorer for the same application.

I'm sorry to hear that Save Target As is not a function in Edge. With the proliferation of downloadable products, that is the most useful function in IE11 and certainly should have been included in Edge. I hope you'll pass on my comments to your design team.

Thank you for responding.

Well, I have today installed W10 and edited a website that has the facility for members to get files on a hyperlink using the 'save target as...' option. I can't believe that this new all singing and dancing EDGE does not have this option. So how is MS  going to promote EDGE if it takes away things that are better on IE?

How is that information helpful? I'd rather here that something is being done to change it. Internet Explorer was definitely not the best browser, and while Edge looks prettier, things like this are making me regret. Could you please, please pass this on to someone who can actually change this is Edge? Because the suggestion to use Internet Explorer is far from helpful: It's less secure, less user friendly, and now we have to use it to just download a file.

Please pass this on to someone who can add that feature, and many other right click features to Edge.

Is there any way that future updates of Microsoft Edge will contain a  ‘save target as’ option as it is an essential tool for my use of the internet. If not could someone suggest an alternative application/ browser that will work with Windows 10 and provide this most useful option.

Why not just use Internet Explorer?  It's still in Windows 10 and you can set it as your default, probably because Edge is a Browser in the relatively early stages of development when it comes to more 'advanced' features than those required for general Internet browsing.

Of the many alternatives available, my preferred choice would be Firefox because it tends to be more configurable than the other alternatives; and doesn't try to continually force the use of Google services on to its users.

You could also use Ctrl-j  to find out where your downloads would be going, open that, and then after the download copy it to wherever different you want it.  If you have a lot to go in the same place you could even change the location of  shell:downloads  temporarily.

Congratulations Microsoft on your giant leap backwards!  I was honestly surprised when I tried to save a simple txt file, and was only able to have it open in the browser.  I quickly went from surprised to just down right horrified.  No 'save target as' nor 'File... Save As'.  You guys really out did yourselves this time.

The only real solution here is to use any browser except edge.
