[Solved]Problem with choice of download folder on Opera GX.

  • Hello,

    I have a configuration problem with Opera GX LVL2 (core: 71.0.3770.234) on Windows 10.

    I set up the "Downloads" option on a hard drive that only serves to download.
    But every time I click on a download link on the internet, I have a dialogue window that opens to ask me which folder the file should download.

    Why doesn't the download automatically start the way I set it up ?

    Thank you for your help.


  • @Amiborg Depending on the file type, the save as dialog will always show up for security reasons.
    Also, that setting is more for when you right click on a link and choose Save Content As.

  • @leocg Thank you so much for your response and your help. Have a nice weekend.
