1. Save files to
2: Always ask me where to save files
In my settings, the Always ask me where to save files
is ticked by default.
If you choose Save file to
instead, then it will always place downloaded
files in the folder of your choosing at the time of downloading.
If you choose Save files to
, then you must type into the box, the folder
where you wish downloaded files to go.
Show the Downloads window when downloading a file
should be ticked.
Close it when all downloads are finished
should be un-ticked.
