How to change the save directory quickly by using something like searching?

Posted

Every times, when I download some files from the internet, I should choose the directory by clicking and clicking to the deep target directories. Is there any way to locate the target directory as quick as possible? My target directories are deep buried on the disk. What I can image to solve the problem, is something like the searching tool "everything". Is it possible to combine the searching tools with firefox?

Firefox normally pops up your system file/folder browser, so if you can extend that then perhaps it could be integrated. Otherwise, hmm, add-ons are highly restricted in roaming your disk.

Thank you for your answer. This is not what I want, because I don't want download everything to one same folder and then move to different target directories. I need a quick way to locate my target directory before the download starting.

In the OS file picker you can usually bookmark a folder via the right-click context menu for easy access, so you can consider to bookmark some (parent) folders you frequently use.

Yes, that's a trick. Good suggestion.
