How To Set the File Download Location in Google Chrome for Windows

(Photo © Scott Orgera)

This tutorial is for an outdated version of Google Chrome. Please refer to our updated tutorial.

A window should now be displayed prompting you to select a new download location. You can choose any location that Windows recognizes, including flash drives. In the example above, I have chosen the SO folder as Chrome's new download location. Once you have selected the desired location, click on the OK button.
