Customise your File Download settings (in Chrome’s browser)

chrome logo

Are you unhappy with the default location where Google Chrome downloads your files – or would you prefer to save some files in a different place?

This may be especially useful if you have a second drive with more space than your “C drive” has.

Here’s how to change the settings:-

1. Open up the Menu to show the “Settings” option.

Chrome Settings

2. Once the Settings screen is open, you’ll need to scroll down to the end until you see “Advanced Settings”

Chrome Settings - advanced

3. Once in that screen, scroll down a little until you see the option to change Download settings – here you can browse to a folder of your choice – and (if you wish) select a checkbox to ask Chrome to prompt you for a location each time, in case you wish to choose a different one.

Chrome Download settings

4. Close down the tab for “Settings” which will save your changes.

Listen to digital radio on your PC

What’s your favourite radio station ?
(mine is Magic, but I also love Heart)

Do you know you can listen to it being broadcast live over your internet connection (using any computer) ?
