How To Choose The Default Download Location In Google Chrome

How often do you download files from the Internet? Probably pretty often. If you just started using the Chrome browser, one of the questions you probably have is: where my downloaded files are saved? In each browser, it is possible to create the folder where you want to just put all the downloaded files. In Google Chrome, the default location where all downloaded files will be is \Users\ \Downloads. Just imagine how much you will overload your system disk (usually Disk C) with daily downloads of movies, television shows, music, installations files, etc. And you probably know that the less free space you have on the disk C, Windows will be slower. But, you can change the location anytime you want and we are going to show you how to do that. Read the simple guide below: how to choose the default download location in Google Chrome.
