Download Folder in 5.x (2 posts)

    In Version 4.0.3 of Fetch, if you went to preferences, selected the download tab, there was a selection of "Use Download Folder" and a button to pop a dialog to reset the path to the download folder. I can't find this in 5.x.
    Yes I can see, "Go to Folder" but that requires one to hand type a path to a folder, an error-prone process, which is doubly complicated if one wishes to reset back to the original download folder after the download.
    Has the function of the 4.0.3 button/dialogue been dropped for version 5.x of Fetch?

    Fetch 5 still has this feature, although it has been renamed and works slightly different.

    Go to the Preferences, click the Download tab, and click the "Save downloaded files to" pop-up menu to choose a folder to save your files to. The pop-up menu offers a couple of commonly used locations, or you can choose "Other" to pick any folder on your hard drive.

    If you would like Fetch to ask you which folder to download files to every time you download, choose "Ask every time" from the menu.

    Please let us know if this does not answer your question or if you have other questions.
