How do I change and save to the folder of my choice instead of the downloads folder? (Google Chrome Only)

Note: You only need to do this one time, not every time you save!

In the New piZap images are automatically saved to your Downloads folder. If you want to change this so that you can choose a folder when you save please follow these 3 simple steps:  

1. Click the option menu icon in the upper right corner of your Chrome browser and then click on Settings.

2. Scroll to the very bottom of the Settings page and click on  Advanced

3. Scroll down until you see the Downloads section and turn on the toggle for  "Ask where to save each file before downloading"

You will now be able to choose a folder location for your saves!


Why do I have to do this? It works fine on the old piZap?

The New piZap runs on HTML5.  One of the drawbacks of HTML5 is that it can only use the built in download feature on Chrome. By default this is set to save everything to your downloads folder. Once you adjust the setting above it will work as it did before.

Happy piZapping!
