How to open specific download's folder while the download is busy, in Opera 31

  • Hello everyone

    In Opera 12.17, I can right-click any download in the downloads tab and select "Open folder", which opens the folder into which the file is being downloaded or was downloaded into. In Opera 31, I only get the option to open that folder after the download is finished. There is a button "open download folder", but that simply opens the "Downloads" folder in Windows, and not the folder into which any specific download is being downloaded into. Do you know how I can solve this, i.e. so that I can easily go to the download folder of a download while the download is busy downloading?


  • The Open Downloads button should open the folder that you have set as the default for saving files to. Thats your downloads folder. If you save these downloads into different folders all the time its not going to know which one you want to see, especially if you have 2 downloads going at the same time headed to different folders. That said, there might be an extenion out there that changes this behavior. I don't know of one off the top of my head but its something to look into.
