use Temp folder?



  • Re: Vivaldi cannot use Temp folder?

    Still have this bug on latest version. Vivaldi saves file in my download directory when i chose "Open".
    Really bothers me. My download folder is for me, not for Vivaldy playgames. Store your things somewhere else.
    Or maybe this is by intent?



  • So far Vivaldi has only one default directory for any download, and open implies download and execution, if that extension is registered to be opened with a default program. I'm sure more options will be implemented later to separate the things.



  • So why Vivaldy does not delete file after opening?



  • @eugene128736871 because some like me, prefer to do it by themselves. What I need will be moved to its proper directory, what I don't need anymore will be deleted by me. In any case, after a file is opened, it's in use and hardly can be deleted. It can be marked as to be deleted after it's not being used anymore, but only if the OS allows this.
    I'm sure there will be an option for this some day.



  • I confirm, that Vivaldi 1.15.1147.36 (Stable channel) (32-bit) still saves all downloads to the downloads folder. I have read somewhere in the Vivaldi blog that it was changed to save "Open" downloads to the temporary folder.

    I think it was done by design. It is for cases when you open a file once but then you want to find it on your computer and don't want to bother searching it on the internet again. But sometimes you frequently download dozens of files which you need only one time. In that case your downloads folder becomes mess. For such cases we need setting where to store files when you press the open button.
