Description from store This extension allows users to download files to a temporary folder, such as Downloads\Temp, rather than the Downloads folder. Once a download is initiated, a popup appears; press OK to save the download in the Temp folder or Cancel to save the download in the default Downloads folder.

  • (2020-10-15) Lenin Zapata: Muy necesaria, agregen la posibilidad de importar y exportar la configuracion, tengo una configuracion extensa
  • (2018-07-27) Martin Schreurs: Very great app, finally my download is not cluttered with temp-downloads (still think that is a very big insight-fault of the developers). And an option to cleanup the folder on exit would really be great!
  • (2017-07-12) This extension works great, easy filtering also, even allows for wildcards. Thanks for this! One suggestion though to make it a 5-star: could you add the option to clean the temp folder on exit?
  • (2016-10-13) Pablo: Just what I was looking for! Goodbye to endless list of files downloaded that you only need them once...
  • (2016-07-14) Kyler Nelson: Useful extension. Would like to see a filter option to always prompt for specific file types and an option to save to a location automatically if no filter is configured for a file type, making it so you don't have to see a prompt very frequently.
  • (2016-04-02) MartinezZ De Los Klimos: HI. I don't get it. Can you listening in Chrome/Vivaldi and make rule if I press Open in standard download dialog -> save file to Temp folder AND if I press Save (in standard download dialog) just download file to folder which I set in browser as Download? (OR classicly open exporer for make choice where I want to save file)?
  • (2016-01-26) Arsalan Khalid: You should allow the user to send downloads to the actual temp directory located in Users>username>AppData>Local>Temp instead of just creating a temp folder! Are you on GitHub, I can totally submit a pull request.
  • (2016-01-19) Yehor Konoval: Guys, could you please add a possibility to turn off "Download to Temp Folder" confirmation? Your extension is great, but this is really annoying. For example I want only torrent files to be saved into temp folder (and maybe some others which I will define in settings http://i.imgur.com/gpZVQBn.png ) but by default it would be great if no confirmation would rise. Now I'll have to put directly a lot of file types in settings to avoid that confirmation. Think about it. Thanks
  • (2015-10-28) gar keiner: Downloading to a designated "Temp" folder works very well. The (optional) dialog before a download is great. Only removing downloads (single files or clearing the whole "Temp" folder) doesn't work at all, which is quite annoying. :-(
  • (2015-04-25) Nir A: Excellent! Works well and easy to use.
  • (2015-04-20) Matan Steiner: Great! Finally I can easily manage my downloads and I don't have to have a mess in the Downloads folder.
