I was trying to tell Chrome that ...

I would prefer future downloads to be put into
the \Public\Public documents\Downloads folder (rather than
the \My Documents\Downloads folder)

when I struck a problem I've encountered before (especially with older software).

The problem is that the software offers me only a folder-tree rooted at C:/ and I see no way to reach \Public\Public documents\Downloads.

How do I do it?

I have always disliked virtual folders.

Might be a prob with chrome. I thought it was, because it maybe hidden (but its not). But I'm using Opera. I can change it to the public folders no prob at all

Same with FF easy to change and can bet set for individual downloads using downthemall the addon. Another reason not to use Chrome then, tried it for a week and hated it
