Let Google Chrome ask you where you want to save downloads

When you download a file through Google Chrome, the file is stored in a predefined folder. On a computer, whether a Windows or Mac computer, downloads through Google Chrome are stored in the “Downloads” folder.

The downloads folder is located in the user profile of the logged-in user. However, suppose you want to organize downloads through Google Chrome yourself by storing downloads in a different location. In that case, you can set Chrome to ask where downloads should be saved.
