How to Move the Downloads Folder to Windows 10

Learn how to tell Windows 10 to store your Download on any part of the disc you want.


By default, Windows save your downloads to your personal folder with the Greek title "Download Details" under the% UserProfile% folder of your account (for example: "C: \ Users \ Dimitris \ Downloads").

You can change this option and the files you download are stored in a folder called "Downloads" but will be in another location on your hard disk or another disk, or even on another computer on the network.

Let's see how:

Step 1. Create a new folder named "Downloads" (in English and not in Greek) in the desired location (eg on disk "D") to move your personal Downloads folder. That is, for our example, we simply created the D: \ Downloads folder.

Step 2. Open File Explorer on your PC. For convenience, press Win + E at the same time, find the "Downloads" folder that is already saved and is logically located under C: \ Users \ Your_Name. We found him for convenience under the group "Quick access".

Step 3. Once you find it, right-click on the "Download Details" folder and then click on "Properties" which is logically at the bottom of the pop-up list.

Step 4. In the Properties window, click on the "Position" tab, and then click the "Move" button. (See screenshot below)

Step 5. Navigate to and select the "Downloads" folder in the location you want (eg: "D: \ Downloads") from step 1, and click "Select Folder"

Step 6. Click the OK button to confirm the change

Step 7. In the Windows prompt to want to move all files to the new location Click "Yes" to move all files from their old location to the new location. (although this is your personal choice)

Step 8. Your personal "Downloads" folder and all its contents should now have been moved to their new location (eg: "D: \ Downloads") and you will logically see this new location in "quick access" to file exploration as a folder named "Download Details"
