I wonder if there is a way to set a download folder for Microsoft Team.

Sometimes I need to download files posted on Microsoft Teams to my computer.  I work with different teams and I would like to keep these files separately.  However, when I click to download file, I am not given an option to choose the download destinations.  All files go to the default download folder, from where I have to move them to the proper destination manually.  

 

I wonder if Teams has an option to change download folder.

I'm not aware of a way of changing this and I agree it would be nice to be able to choose the download location from the teams app

I agree, i even have the problem that i changed the "default" download folder, now Teams will stick to the old download folder and that is really frustrating....

Totally agree it is almost a little weird that this does not exist already!

 

I agree. It could be configurable in exactly this way like it is done in Google Chrome (web browser), where you can choose between default folder and option for asking for folder every time user is about to download something.

@zorge 

Was there an answer to this ever. I too have come across the need to be able to select the download folder for files.

Mine just downloads into the root folder of one of my harddrives...

 I baught Microsoft "Teams"App from you.But,Icouldn't completely do my work because of the power cot.So,How can I get it again?

I baught Microsoft "Teams"App from you.But,Icouldn't completely do my work because of the power cot.So,How can I get it again?

@zorge  If you use a copy option in teams, you can save it anywhere in your OneDrive location. 

@Suthakar700  I don't see the Copy option - If I'm in a chat with a coworker, and they drop a file into the conversation; I don't see any option except to let Teams download it to my Downloads folder if I want it on my computer. I want to be able to download it to a folder of my choice -- would love it to be "let me choose" like browsers allow, or even selecting a user-selected static folder like Slack or Skype (better than just dumping it into Downloads). Only options I see are Open (online) / Get link / Download... 

Thanks.

@zorge Ridiculous that no changes since 2017.

@NatLo Agree, I am new to Teams thanks to CoVid, one would think that a company as large and global as MS would be bothered to cater for simple things like this. I have already voted on another issue - allowing channels to book meetings on calendars, as loads of us teachers wanted that, and still no change. 

@pamacs24 Agree about the booking meetings - by experimenting, I found you can book Teams meetings from your Exchange account in Outlook and it will show up on your Teams calendar, but not visa versa. Scheduling a meeting in Team Calendar doesn't show up in attendees Outlook calendar, at least in my attempts. I saw numerous postings and complaints, but I haven't done anything but a superficial post. Hope this helps.

I know it is a pain Teams will not let you selct which folder when selecting download, but if I simply click on the "Open Online" option, it opens Chrome briefly then the "save as"window. @zorge

I think the simplest thing to do here is changing the default windows download directory.

If you do that it will automatically change the path of the system download folder. So the files will come in the desired folder.

 

To do this:

1) right click on Download folder

2) properties
3) path

4) change path

Mine just downloaded to the stratosphere.... still can't find the files.  I opened the teams web version and it actually asks where to download the files.  I cannot find where the default download folder is in teams nor how to set it up or change it.

@Debra710 Should be in your default Downloads folder (e.g., C:/users/debra/Downloads)

Hi @TYMLG 

Thank you for this information and these instructions.  This allowed me to change my default download folder.  When selecting "Download", I do not get to choose the folder at that time, but at least your instructions permit me to set a default download folder of my choice.

 

I would add some information to your instructions.  You listed step 3 as:

3) path

 

On my Windows 10 computer, the folder Properties tab is called: Location

The next "button" to select is: Move...

After I selected "Move" and selected a download folder, Windows asked if I wanted to move the files from the previous Downloads folder to my newly selected Downloads folder.  I selected "Yes" and moved the previously downloaded files.

 

My steps were:

3) Location tab

4) Move button

5) Navigate to desired download folder

6) Choose: Select Folder

7) Choose if you want to move files from the previous download folder to the current download folder

 

Thank you for teaching me about the folder Properties feature.
