Open file still opens the save file dialog

Postby incoog » Mon Aug 13, 2018 9:42 am

Hi!

I've been using advanced chrome for a couple of months now and I absolutely love it!
The main reason is the "Improved Download System" and it has been working flawlessly until just a couple of days ago when it suddenly stopped working.
Now, it doesn't matter if i click on save or open, the save file dialog still appears.

I'm on the "Latest Build" version 69.0.3445.0

Do you have any suggestions on how to make it work again?

Best Regards and thank you for taking chrome to the next level!

Hi! welcome to the forum, this is because the browser can not create or use the temporary download folder located at user profile.

You can find this folder at:
C:\Users\<YOUR USER NAME>\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Default\Cache\Downloads

To fix this you just need to close advanced chrome and all explorer windows, sometimes the folder is locked by the file system and causes this problem, usually a reboot will work.

Try this and report back :D

Hi and thank you.

I closed all windows and closed advanced chrome, even restarted my computer and were still not able to open files.
So i looked in folder path above and there were no "Downloads"-folder, so i just created one and that fixed the issue! :D

Thank you for your help
Best Regards
