Downloads?



  • I have the download to default location unticked. Now when I download a file I can't find where it was downloaded to. I have opened the side panel and right clicked on the download to open containing folder with no luck. I have tried everything I can think of. Now I have one question, "How do I find the files I download?" For now I need to use Firefox (FF asks where I want my downloads to go) to download files, so does Chrome. It seems that Vivaldi won't ask where to send downloads. btw, I even have the download box empty. Attachments: [img]https://forum.vivaldi.net/uploads/attachments/85092/VivaldiDownloads.png[/img]



  • It's true, a better behaviour from Vivaldi should allow to open it anyway even if the default download dir is empty.
    The files are saved in current Vivaldi directory:

    C:\Program Files\Vivaldi\Application\1.5.609.8\ (your version may vary)

    of course it's advisable to set a predefined directory you like.



  • Found a "work-around". Bit of a pita but worth the trouble. It should ask where to send downloads each time just like Chrome or Firefox. Wish the devs would fix this.

    1. Right click on Vivaldi desktop icon.
    2. Click "open file location"
    3. Right click "downloads">Create "desktop shortcut"
    4. Right click desktop icon>click "Rename">Vivaldi Downloads
    5. Right click Vivaldi Downloads>"Pin to Start Menu (Classic Shell)"

    note: I have Classic Shell installed. Classic Shell is a nice little piece of software if you like the Win7 or XP Start Menu. Download Classic Shell from http://www.classicshell.net
