[Solved]Opera asks where to save the file .exe

  • Opera 44.0.2510.849 (PGO) x64 ; Update stream: beta; Windows 8.1 x64

    Set a specific location for saving files, but Opera still opens a window asking where to save file

  • It's by design. For security reasons, Opera will always ask for download location when an executable file is being downloaded.
