Ask for save location on every download / prompt for download location

I’d like Staton to ask me on every download where to save the concerned file

It is a not a full implementation? We can now change the default download location, but there is no option to have Station ask every time where to save.


I agree with DennisKuscu. A settings dialog that just lets you change the default download location is not enough, I need the option to be able to choose every time where to save files. Can’t use Station without it.



I also need this feature to work easily, it should ask every time I download a file so I won’t need to open the default later. Besides, it would be total if, after the download, I am able to click on the pop-up and then open the file directly (currently it opens the folder). I guess having both options like in Chrome would fit perfectly.


I was a Franz user until yesterday and got frustrated with downloads and opening links which would hang. I found Station and I am hooked - great work. especially the download feature. but I was expecting to see a checkbox saying “Ask where to save each file before downloading” like Google Chrome allows - see image attached:

I am already converted to Station (great work!) but this is a relatively simple fix for an excellent feature (I am a windows software developer of 20 years!)… and hope that you could find the time in your busy feature path to include this as would make a massive difference personally (and stop me to going back to gmail in Chrome just to save invoices etc into folders I want).


I have had to go back to using Franz for now until Downloads folder is working. I will keep an eye on this as I am sure this is a very simple fix and willmove back once its been added in.

any updates on this as a feature?
it’s been a year, I feel this is a huge miss in the app.

I got 1.15.0 but if i download something it still does not ask me where to save it. do i have to change any settings anywhere>

+1 for choosing download location each time. I have a heck of a lot of folders, all organised into hierarchy’s both online and offline. Having to manually cut, paste files into their respective folders after the download is just extra steps that aren’t needed.

totally agree! i always download at different places, so would be great to select where first

+1! It’s a waste of time to have to always go to the Downloads folder to move it to where I actually want it. It’s an extra unnecessary step.



Has there been any updates from the developers on this? Seems to have been an issue for nearly a year?



This is necessary! I avoid downloading files through Station because I know it’s going to be a burden.
Another thing is to have a "Open folder" button after finishing a download like every browser has. Clicking on the download notification opens the file which annoyingly I need exactly never :stuck_out_tongue:


Very very very much +1

much needed feature

I’m cursing every time I have to download an attachment from an email …

any news on this?


Who the hell saves all mail attachments in the same folder?
Especially work mail attachments.
This feature should have been included in version 0.1

+1 I totally agree. This is an essential feature that should be standard for a program as Station if they are serious about people using it professionally.

I am a new user and cannot use station for my emails without this feature. I prefer to use a browser where it works. Until implemented Station will only be an experiment for me.

Any update on this yet? I am back to using Franz awaiting the day Station rolls out this simply update allow me to download attachments to “any” folder I choose!

+1 - This is an essential feature for my daily work flow. Please apply to an update ASAP.


Would it be possible to add the “ask every time” option as the download destination, like in web browsers?
Currently, I can use either the Downloads or any other directory of choice, yet this is not very flexible and not always the best option…
