Chrome Disable Download Prompt (Google)

In this guide I will show you how to disable the download prompt in Google Chrome. This will allow you to disable the download prompt that comes up and asks where you want to save each file. Personally, I like to see everything going to my downloads folder. The prompt can drive me crazy, especially on a day where I have a lot of files to download.

First we need to click on the triple stack dots in the top right hand corner, then click on Settings.

Next we will click on the down arrow to the right of the Advanced sub header. This will expands the menu so that we can see some more options.

Select the Downloads option.

On the right hand side look for the Downloads header. One you found that look, for the option “Ask where to save each file before download“. We will want to click on that so the toggle is on the left hand side, also known as disabled.

This is a feature that you could quickly turn on and off depending on what you are doing and the preffered workflow.
