    Is there a way to change the global default of where files are downloaded on my system when I click Get PDF?

    Right now all forms automatically go to my Downloads folder, how can I redirect those to automatically be downloaded to another folder?

    Unfortunately as of right now I don't know of us having any options to control where to download the file into your computer for your submissions.

    Do you mean that you want to be able to do this from directly from within your account if I understand you correctly?

    As an alternative currently you can however control this directly with your browser but I can understand that this might not be so straight forward to do.

    For Example here are instructions for changing where you download files in Chrome:

    Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.

    Select Settings. Click Show advanced settings and scroll down to the "Downloads" section.

    To change the default download location, click Change and select where you'd like your files to be saved.

    If you'd rather choose a specific location for each download, select the "Ask where to save each file before downloading" checkbox.

    Thanks for the response, KadeJM!

    I was hoping to keep the JotForm downloads separate from other downloads so your browser option will not resolve my request.

    I appreciate your fast response!

    Thank you.

    In order for you to Keep the JotForm downloads separate, this can only be achieve if you have previously created the specific folder to store downloaded forms, then working on the Settings configuration my colleague Kade above indicated, next download will pop up a question for you to indicate where folder this download is going to.

    If any other question please do contact us.
