From time to time, you need to download files into your android device, but the downloaded files always end up in the default folder. Is there any way I can change that default folder or make the device prompt me every time I need to download files?

You should use the dolphin browser. While downloading file from the internet a popup appears and allows you to change the destination to save the file wherever you want. Hope you are looking for that. (Still figuring out android pad?)


I don't think this is possible. However, here is a very good file manager you could use to move the files after downloading: ES File Explorer


on Samsung, swipe down, go to settings (gear icon upper right) search for sites and downloads

WAIT - scroll down and DISABLE SAMSUNG Internet! TURN IT OFF!

then scroll up to "Sites and downloads"

"Save downloaded files to" NOTE: ONLY when Samsung internet is OFF will the option to save to SD Card will become available. I then simply pointed to the Download directory on the SD Card

This process worked on my Samsung 5G FE (Fan Edition) phone.
