        Need this feature added, my browser default downloads to a folder I created in OneDrive, naturally I want file to go there rather than my device disk.

        End-users don't know where their files are going, it's not intuitive to click on the notification label, and doesn't inform you where the files has gone.

        I'm another who likes the idea of getting prompted by a file chooser dialog for where to download.

        Again, amazed how long time it can take for these incredible straight-forward functions.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I really need this function implemented as I deal with a high volume of files downloaded.
        The way Microsoft implemented, I cannot organize easily, can be really annoying.

        Please, even allowing for a dialog to pick your download folder at the time of getting the file would be better than a default to "Downloads" only.

        We are wanting to transition to Teams however downloading is not working on my colleagues computers it works on my device but no one else

        I would also like to see a download folder setting like all other computing technologies have been doing for years.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Any progress on this? Should it really take more than half a year to add this "feature" that should have been existed from the beginning in the first place?

        Thank you

        I am so surprised that changing the download folder is not available...this is the first time I cannot find such feature.

        Please implement this feature

        Every browser allows us to change our default download folder, the option should be in Teams preferences too. I always download to my desktop.

        How is this feature going? This doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to implement.

      • Vincent commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can't believe this wasn't implemented. The download file feature doesn't even tell you where the files end up. Is Teams still in beta?

      • Rob Pidgley commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate
