Where is Opera storing currently downloading files?

  • While I'm downloading some big files, Opera show me them in the target directory, but they have zero size and .opdownload extension.
    I'm guessing Opera is actually downloading them to some hidden location. Where can I find the actual files? Or force Opera to actually download them to the directory I choose?

    Thanks.

    P.S.: I have always all hidden and system files showing enabled, so it's not a solution, there's nothing "hidden" in the target directory.

  • I would assume in the temp directory. "C:\Users\yourusername\Appdata\local\temp".
