How to manually select download location

Hi All

Question for you. When I try and download some types of files I get a pop up that asks me if I want to open the file or save the file. Most the time I want to save the file but it gets rather annoying having to then go into my downloads folder and move the file where I wanted to download it to.

Is there a way to manually set the download option to let me select the download location? Not talking a permanent change like this folder to that as each download is different and I might want the file stored elsewhere. So is there a way to set it so it asks me where I want the file saved rather then defaulted to the download folder in Win 10?

Thanks Dave

Thanks that is what I was hoping something simple like that. Strange part is I have been in there before for other things and just never even noticed that setting!

Thanks
