how to use regular download folder [SOLVED]

Post by shmu26 » Thu Aug 03, 2017 2:06 pm

I set my regular download folder as "forced" folder.
Now, I want Chrome to download to that regular folder, because it is more convenient that way.
How to do it?
I granted full access to that folder, but Chrome is still downloading to the virtual equivalent of it.

Hello shmu26,

You will need to remove that folder from Force Folders in order to be able to use it outside Sandboxie.
Please see this for more info:

Barb, I think shmu26 wants downloads to go straight through to his Forced downloads folders bypassing sandboxing. Shmu26, if thats what you want, you need to allow Direct file access to that folder in Sandbox settings. You also need to make Chrome download to that folder, no asking. I am not familiar with Chrome but I think you should be able to do that with Chrome.
