Windows 7: Setting default save location to last save folder

Setting default save location to last save folder

Is there any way to set the default save location folder for downloads in IE8 to the last folder that the same file type was saved in? It makes no sense to default to a single folder and have to browse through to the desired folder for every single download, so I assume there has to be an option somewhere.

Limited choice here. Pictures (right click, save picture as) will save to My Pictures. Else, right click save will save to the last folder used.

No other option by file type.

But,you can do this... Adding Entries to the Standard Context Menu

Welcome to Seven Forums Woodly312. IE only gives the option to select 1 download location, not set multiple locations by file type. A Guy

Honestly just repeating Woodl'ys Question: Is there a way to tell Windows 7 to save a file type in the last folder that type was saved; if not will there be a patch to correct this anytime soon? A Quick google shows this was not a popular change folks. Blessings, BB.

There is a good workaround. Use this;

DropIt: Sort Your Files With A Drop!

<http://dropit.sourceforge.net/>

Set it up to sort the files wherever you want them.

My pleasure. Hope it achieves what you want. Works well for me. Also very good if you have large folders of assorted stuff you want to sort.
