Why no option to customize download folder, like most other pro software?

MS Teams downloads folder.jpgDoes anyone know the reason why Teams doesn't have any options to set a custom location for its downloads?

Every other software I use lets me customize it. This means I don't just have a single catch-all folder for every single download (what a mess), but instead I have folders dedicated to each software. This makes for less clutter, both in the OS and in the Mind.

 

Why doesn't Teams have any options to customize this?

Thanks for the reply, but sadly not. That page confirms that the download location cannot be changed.
