Most people today use download managers to download big files from the internet. However, almost all the browsers of today come with a basic download manager that is very helpful to download small files. Google Chrome is one of the most popular web browsers used extensively by almost everybody. Chromium, which is an open-source and stripped-down version of Google Chrome that is used by some enthusiastic developers to build their own browsers with more features than Google Chrome. Recently one of the most advertised browsers made from Chromium is the Brave browser, which is even available for Android and Linux, besides Windows.

Well, whether Brave browser is better than Google Chrome and other most popular browsers, is something that I will discuss in a different article. But when it comes to downloads, it is handled in a different way on Brave browser. Unlike Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc., you get an option to select the download location before it is started. This ability to choose the download location beforehand can be handy for a number of users, but if you are downloading small files back to back, an extra click to choose the download location can turn out to be really frustrating very quickly. However, this is the default setting on Brave browser, changing which is a piece of the pie.

So without any further delay, let’s get started with how you can prevent Brave browser from asking you the download location every time you try downloading something.

The steps to follow

Click on the hamburger menu on the top right corner of the browser, and click on ‘Settings’.

Now turn off the option that says ‘Ask where to save each file before downloading’, and choose a download location by clicking on the ‘Change’ option, and by selecting a local folder location on your hard drive, or a mapped drive, whichever is suitable for you.

Alternatively, you can even turn on the feature and make Brave browser ask you every time you try downloading a file. This feature isn’t limited to Brave browser exclusively. This tutorial is also applicable for Google Chrome and other browsers based on the open-source Chromium project.

So that was all about the tutorial. Do you have any questions about the tutorial? Feel free to comment on the same down below.
