Microsoft has released the new Chromium-based Edge browser this year and if you have updated to the latest version of the Edge, it turns out that you have received the new Microsoft Edge browser. As you are using the Edge for a while, you start noticing that the files you download are saved in the default location i.e. Downloads directory on your Windows or Mac. You might be thinking to change the download location on the Edge browser, so here’s a quick little guide for you showing it.

How to change download location in the new Microsoft Edge browser

Here what you need to do to change the default download location on the Microsoft Edge browser.

Get great PC and Mac games on Origin. Play the latest RPGs, shooters, Sims games & more. Try before you buy demos and trials and score totally free games! Use it to open Origin files in the Mac environment (Mac OS 10.10 or newer) so that you can view and copy data to other applications, including the copying and pasting of Origin's publication-quality graphs and layout pages as PNG or PDF images. Now in order to change the default Origin game library location all we have to do is change the value in this line to the folder path that we want to use. For example if you want to change the install location to a folder on an external drive the line should look something like this.

  • Launch Microsoft Edge browser on your Windows or Mac.
  • Click on the three dots at the top right corner and click on Settings at the bottom of the list.
  • Click on Downloadson the left side, and on the right side, click Change as shown in the screenshot below.
  • You can also choose the slider Ask where to save each file before downloading so that you can save the files to a different location every time you download them. You will be asked to choose the download location on your computer.

That was it for now. If you are using any other browsers, like Chrome or Safari, you can also change the default download location on them. Changing the download location on Google Chrome is easy as well as changing the default download location on Safari.

Changing the Installation Path

For EA games you can set the default installation path of a game through Origin

Click on OriginApplication Settings and choose the tab Installation and Saves.

In Game Library location you can set the default path for all EA games.

Changing the path will not automatically move already installed games to a different location but all newly installed games will get their own folder within that path.

The path given there will tell you where you’re game is probably installed, especially if you never changed it.

C:Program Files(x86)Origin Games is the default path.

There’s no option to set the path individually for each game. If you want to install the game at a different place then the rest, change the location of the library before installing the game and change it back after the installation is done or simply move the game after installing.

Moving a game to a different installation path

Sometimes it desirable to have your game on a different location from where it was initially installed. For example if you bought a new hard drive and want the games on there, or the space on your c drive is getting sparse and you need to free up some space, or you simply did some reorganization on your drive and want it somewhere else.

I do not recommend installing the game on an external drive or USB stick.

Up till now, you had to uninstall the game and reinstall it again on the new location, which also meant to redownload the entire game.

Origin now has an option to help with that. You can just move it with a single click and Origin will do all the needed registry updates for you.
