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 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....

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.

@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...

@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 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
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.

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:
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.
