How to make XYplorer default download explorer?

Post by BiggyJ » 14 Feb 2019 19:00

Little help needed please...

I need to make XYplorer my default download explorer?

I set XYplorer to be the default explorer so when I double click on a folder it opens. But... that IS NOT what I need. I need to have XYplorer open the "save as" window so that when I right click on a file in a browser, I can download to the last used (saved to) folder in XYplorer.

That may not be clear...

I download files and images all the time from a web browser but it always defaults to the "save to" folder in Chrome. Chrome will not except an empty choice in the settings “save to” field. I want XYplorer to pop up when I right click on a file from within the browser. My problem now is that I am always creating new folders and it is a pain in the ass to always have to browse to where I want to download to. Sometimes these folders are 3-4 levels deep. And when you are downloading say... 20-30 files, It's a royal pain.

So, I need to be able to get XYplorer setup so I can have it open to the last used folder anytime I do a right click to save a file from the web.

Your help would be greatly apricated.

Thank you,
John

True, not possible that way, but see the free tool Listary. XY and Listary are cooperating very well and I am happy using it most of the time.
