Downloading Google Chrome: A Little More

Are you one of the many who are now using the new Google Chrome Web browser? Well, if you’re a heavy Internet downloader, by default, Google Chrome stores all of your files in the Downloads folder under My Documents. Luckily, it’s very easy to change that location if you’d prefer them to go somewhere else. Simply click on the wrench icon ( ) in the top right hand corner and select Options.

Next, click on the Minor Tweaks tab and then hit Browse to change the download location. You can also check the box that says “Ask where to save each file before downloading“ for extra reassurance.

Now, you may be wondering how you can make Google Chrome your default Web browser. Well, by default, Google Chrome doesn’t try to force itself on you like Internet Explorer and Firefox do, but it does allow you to do it manually. Again, click on the Options button under the wrench icon and then click on the Make Google Chrome My Default Browser button under the Default Browser section.

That’s it. I hope this tip finds all of you Google Chrome users well!
