  • Since a few weeks ago, whenever Opera downloads a file, it creates a folder on my Desktop called "temporary_downloads" and then saves the file in there. How can I switch off that behaviour?

  • How to post about a problem in Opera

    I've never seen this before. What folder is set as default one for downloads? This folder is always on? That temporary folder is cerate when you download a file or after you have opened it from Opera?

    Are you using any extensions?

    1. That folder should be confined to a special folder somewhere in the deep.
    2. One would expect that the browser clears this folder automatically. For my Olde Opera, it wasn't exactly each time on exit, but it was regularly. So check it out - and maybe chillax, in the sense of not worrying too much.
    3. Myself even created a desktop shortcut for that folder in yonder days so that I could get easy access, use files and clean it. So in a sense, you're lucky :jester: (however it's not normal).
